For my daughter

To my daughter, my beautiful child.

I wish you well on your journey through life.

I wish for you all the things I could never be,Ii wish for you a life pain free.

Lofty are my dreams for you,

but aiming for that furthest reach is neither here nor there. 

As long as you're happy i really don't care. 

 I see in you my youth now gone, and on this road i must keep travelling on. 

My years are fading into the past,  we all know youth; it never lasts. 

I had my time and watched it pass, but for you my love I hope you have a blast! 

Enjoy your life, and live it well.  Don't look back and never dwell.

Take today and make it what you will, keep travelling onwards up that great big hill. 

Don't stand too long, don't stand too still incase you miss it  whilst looking your fill. 

Watch the crowds if you must, but remember to join in and enjoy the fuss. 

I love you darlin'  n that's the truth and want for you all that is good and true.

Thankyou, it was just one of those moments where I had caught myself looking at her and the words just kinda popped into my head. I guess it's these moments that really are special. Thankyou! x
