There's nothing compares in this big old world Than a father's love for his baby girl From that special moment she is born His life is changed for evermore Holding her tightly in his arms Vowing to protect her from all harm Gazing lovingly into her eyes And singing her sweet lullabies Daddy's heart is taken forever A stronger love you will find never Always be there for his baby girl Walk across hot coals to the ends of the world As she matures the bond does grow Closer than ever and rightly so A girl will always need her dad To laugh with her and comfort when sad Even when she finally leaves To live her life and fulfil her dreams His heart will carry on the wings of a dove For nothing compares to a father's love Tony Stapo, via email A FATHER'S LOVE
