Father and Daughter

Father and Daughter

I remember you before you had memories
I was there the day you were born
I remember when your memories were young
I was there, your father

Now we prepare for you to go
Memories you will make
Return to the time before you were born
Time without daily interaction

Sullen mood to ponder the grief
The day fast approaching when you will be
On your own, experiencing a new life
An adventure you are meant to take

I can bless your leaving as your father
You take a part of me with you
You leave a part of yourself with me
As journey diverges with loving release
