A Letter To My Daughter

DEAR PRINCESS CORIE,

THE FAVOR OF GOD IS PRESENT

LIKE ONE TO UNWRAP JUST FOR ME

I LOOK UPON YOUR FACE IN WONDER

IN AWE OF ITS SPIRIT IN YOUR BEAUTY

I PLEDGE MY UNDYING LOVE TO YOU

FOREVER WILL I PROTECT YOUR INNOCENCE

NURTURING YOUR SELFLESS ACTS SO PURE

TIME WILL NOT STAND STILL FOR YOU

BUT MY LOVE FLOWS FORTH FOR AN ETERNITY

NEVER HOLD YOU BACK BUT ALWAYS HOLD YOU CLOSE

YOUR TO-DO LIST GROWS AS YOU PICK UP THE PACE

TAKE CARE MY PRINCESS DON’T RUN SO FAST

REMEMBER THOSE QUEENS BEFORE YOU

THEIR TEARS HAVE PAVED THE WAY

IT’S OK I EXPECT YOUR HEART TO BREAK

JUST KNOW THAT IT TOO HOLDS A LESSON

YOU'RE SO SMART & BEAUTIFUL EVEN NOW

SO KNOW THROUGH YOUR STORM YOU’LL SHINE

MY HEART IS FULL MY JOY IS IN OVERFLOW

SOON YOU’LL CHOOSE YOUR PATH

MANY JOURNEYS UNFOLD FOR YOUR VIEW

DON’T EVER BE AFRAID TO WALK ON YOUR OWN

OUR FATHER WILL NEVER DEPART FROM YOU

EVEN AFTER YOU GRADUATE FROM HOME

I LOVE YOU PRINCESS CORIE LAVONNE

FROM CONCEPTION TO HEAVEN ON HIGH
