To my dearest stepdaughter
I’ve watched you grow for years
Tried my best to provide growing light
To nourish your soul and to dry your tears.
From a dainty flower you have blossomed
Now a young woman reaching for the dawn
Aside from all I tried to do to help you along
Your strong heart and mind is what fueled you on.
As you now begin to seek the light of the world
Remember you can still seek my listening ear or advice
Getting to be your stepdad is a rare and precious gift
We are always family, and that is worth any price.
I wish I could keep you young, daddy’s little girl
But I know I must watch you grow and even let you go
I am amazed, so proud of the young woman you are
I believe in you, I’m always here for you, just want you to know.
