(written many years ago for my daughter Destiny)

Although I didn’t put you here

I swore to do my best

I did all that I had to do

To keep you fed and dressed

Oh so tiny, beautiful

A blessing from above

I might’ve liked your mother

But, with you, I fell in love

You’ve done so much with more to come

Your future is your name

If never had I met you

Would my life end up the same?

If I had to do it all again

Through heartache and through pain

I’d gladly take your tiny hand

And give you my last name
