Twirling Skirt

Daddy am I lovely? Am I Captivating?
My twirling skirt
Goes round and round
And my heart is aching

To know if you think I’m pretty
Am I your princess? Your little kitten?
Daddy when you look at me
Is your heart now smitten?

Longing for your approval Daddy
A young girl needs to hear
Your words of love and high esteem
Resonating in her ears

But if your earthly Father never said
Precious words of affirmation
Don’t let your heart, in later years
Get lost in contemplation

Because God The Father
Of all little girls, made you lovely and captivating
Round and round in your twirling skirt
His open arms are waiting

To take your hand and walk with you
Or skip if you feel you must
For our Heavenly Father is the only one
To rely on and place your trust

But we acknowledge our Daddy’s
On this Father’s Day
Those who loved us and cherished us
And helped us along our way

To become the young women
God intended all along
Honoring our Father’s
Both on earth and on The Throne
