Daddy's Little Girl

Look at me Dad,

I’m 17 now.

I have my license,

I’m in the top 5 of my graduating class,

and I still know all the words to your 90’s rock,

Look at me Dad.

 

Look at me Dad,

I’ve grown so much,

I’m 5’8, we know I got my height from you,

I’ve learned Statistics and Algebra,

and I’m in my first real relationship, I know you’d like him,

Look at me Dad.

 

Look at me Dad.

I’ve changed an awful lot,

when you passed away, my childhood stolen,

I’m no longer Daddy’s Little Girl,

I’m a strong, but fragile woman,

Look at me Dad.

 

Look at me Dad,

I miss you so much more than words can covey,

I would do anything for one more truck ride,

I would do anything for one more “I love you,”

and what I would do to hear you call me your Lacey Lou,

Look at me Dad.

 

Look at me Dad,

I hope you would be proud,

I’ve worked so hard to get here,

I left my old self behind and have improved so much,

and all of it is because of the man who shaped me,

Look at me Dad.
