A dance with daddy

Daddy, I want to dance with you
Like a princess with her king
Waltzing on a golden floor
Twirling under a silver moon
With music from another world
Playing the rhythm of laughter

I see the light in your eyes
Loving me like the morning sun
And there's nothing like being with you
When the world doesn't get in the way

I know you're cheering me forward
And I want to move past the fear
To find the freedom in the jump
Trusting you'll catch me if I fall

I'll measure every man against you
The one who hung my moon
And wrote my name in the stars
A soul like no other I've known
Loving a daughter like she deserves
Loving me like a queen at a ballroom dance

  1. Reblogged this on johncoyote and commented:
    Beautiful. I took my daughter to a father and daughter dance many moons ago. Today. One of my best days.

  2. I loved the poetry. I raised-up three daughter and I have a 4 month old grand daughter. When I babysit the baby girl. We dance to the music all day.
