My Dad

Every little girl

Has a common dream

To start out as a princess

And grow into a queen

 

As a little girl

I looked up to my dad

He treated me like a princess

He was like my comrade

 

Although I was his princess

He still taught me to work

A queen must be self-reliant one day

From this lesson he did not shirk

 

“Work is very important” he said

But there must be time to play

Whether Mickey Mouse or pirate ships

It’s an important part of the day

 

When others tried to bring me down,

He reminded me to keep my chin up

“No matter what cruel words they say

Remember you are enough”

 

Rain or shine, hot or cold

He always had a smile

He taught me to look at the bright side of things

That lesson has stayed with me for a while

 

I’m so grateful for my dad

For thanks to him I’ve grown

I started as a princess

But as a queen I’ll soon be known
