My little girl

A rose couldn’t compare to your beauty

The love I have in my heart for you shines like no other

From the time I wake to the time I sleep

You are always there for me


We rescued you but really

You rescued us

The sorrow she left me

Gone when I saw your face


Love reflected in your dark eyes

As it did in mine

When I come home,

There you are you greet me

With hugs and a smile


I may have my family

I may have my soulmate

But you

My beautiful girl

Are my shining star in a world

Of endless darkness
