you can’t be in the same room
without arguing
you find fault in everything she does
the faults you pick on
are all your own
daddy’s girl

you want her to crawl into your lap like she is three
she wants to be treated like an adult
she wants to be seen for who she is
what you see is
all the mistakes you made
you want to fix her
she wants to fly
daddy’s girl

you look at her and can’t believe how fast time passes
she was once so small
and defenseless
you want to be
her knight in shining armor
but all she wants is a chance
to find the hero in herself
daddy’s girl
