She sat on the rug and played
At puzzles, pens, and people
Within my touch yet far away
Her world of make believe.

Bow legs' wobble made me smile
First steps were a game
Toddling falls took just a kiss
To make things right again.

Now I know that I was slow
To understand how precious is she
I recall when she first spoke
(With a little prompting)
"Daddy I love you."

Changing slowly, hard to see
The old for new made room
Turn my head, the baby's gone
I'm watching beauty bloom.


I stop in her room at night
And watch her smile in sleep
Sunlit fields with butterflies
I wish her in her dreams.



from Gasoline Rainbows, track released February 13, 2014
