A Song For Haley

A song written for my daughter.

She walks in the woods alone

She puts her thoughts down in a poem

Prayer flags and dolls upon her shelf

She’s original, holding true to herself

This world will never break her

She sings along with James Taylor

She dances, alone in her room

She tells her secrets, to the midnight moon

Fathers and daughters

A bond like no other

Believe me brother

I’ll always love her

Puts her make up on in the dark

Blind secrets, hidden in an innocent heart

Her smile makes my world brighter

Her openness sets the darkness on fire

She’s strong and she’s true

She seeks no approval, from me or you

A mystery in the blood we share

In her eyes, like a mirror I stare

Fathers and daughters

A bond like no other

Believe me brother

I’ll always love her
