Today is the day we celebrate all of the proud fathers that have walked their daughters down the aisle and handed them over to get married, or all of the fathers to be that will one day slow dance the father daughter dance at their little girl’s wedding.
I remember back to my own wedding and the hours put into deciding which song my dad and I would dance to, finally choosing My Little Girl, by Tim McGraw:
Gotta hold on easy as I let you go.
Gonna tell you how much I love you,
though you think you already know.
I remember I thought you looked like an angel wrapped in pink so soft and warm.
You’ve had me wrapped around your finger since the day you were born.
Your beautiful baby from the outside in.
Chase your dreams but always know the road that’ll lead you home again.
Go on, take on this whole world.
But to me you know you’ll always be, my little girl.
When you were in trouble that crooked little smile could melt my heart of stone.
Now look at you, I’ve turned around and you’ve almost grown.
Sometimes you’re asleep I whisper “I Love You!” in the moonlight at your door.
As I walk away, I hear you say, “Daddy Love You More!”.
Someday, some boy will come and ask me for your hand.
But I won’t say “yes” to him unless I know, he’s the half
that makes you whole, he has a poet’s soul, and the heart of a man’s man.
I know he’ll say that he’s in love.
But between you and me. He won’t be good enough!
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY TO PAST, CURRENT AND FUTURE FATHERS!
