daddy's little girl

he had hopes and dreams

many to achieve

many he wanted to inspire

then he had a little girl

oh, she had a lot of spark

she was a fire that ignited

they all would point to the little twinkle in her eye

it was as if a glow had emerged

but he didn’t see it

he saw nothing

just a lonesome one


yet when she saw him

her eyes lit with joy

and her smile grew to the ends of the room

but then slowly by time

it disappeared


where’d it go?

will it come back?

well truth be told

only that little girl can say

and she’s nowhere to be found
