~ A Father's Love ~

Was it only yesterday, I kissed you goodnight

But those days are now long gone,
For you have grown into adulthood
The end result of being born..
I am grateful for your tender years
As I thank God for your love,
I had no idea on your birthday
How precious you'd become.
All the special memories I recall
Of your head upon my arm,
With lots of fun and adventures
As I protected you from harm.
Now, I must let go those yesterdays
The nights I paced the floor,
For you have another path to walk
To find your open door.
As you grow into the joy
Of finding life can hold much more,
My encouragement I give
As you follow your own call.
For a Daddys love is not enough
There's courage needed on your way,
As you put your hand into the hand of God
My part will be to pray.
But the treasure I will keep forever
Is my delight in who you are,
And as I will always be your father
You will be my shining star.
