The way you love them,
that's how I love you.
All day long,
I delight to be near you.

I smile when you say something wise.
When you say anything funny, I laugh.
Really laugh, too.

As small as you are,
you bless me with your affection.
When you lean in, I close my eyes and breath in, too.

I take the time to plan good things for you.
I call myself Father to reflect my heart to you.

And you can love them as much as you do
because that's how I first loved you.
