I wish for a world where every daughter will know her dad loves her completely, from her head to her toes.
I long for the day when every dad will inspire the gifts in his daughter, saying she can go higher.
I want every girl to believe she can do it while her dad cheers her on as she learns to intuit.
I dream of a time when all girls have their voice because dad modeled to them that it's good to have choice.
I pray for the truth inside each precious daughter of who she really is to be shaped by her father.
I believe a dad's love does more then he knows to counter the impact of life's cruel blows.
I know a girl thrives with consistent support from her dad's heart to hers through each option she sorts.
I plead with you, dad, to give more and still more to your daughter's heart place so to heights she can soar.
I hope beyond hope that no girl ever wonders if she is worth loving, you must forgive blunders.
I urge you, dear dad, not to downplay your role and as proof of your impact, look deep in her soul.
I appeal to you, dad, as a woman myself so you know your investment is above earthly wealth.
I beg you right here because now is the time to fine-tune your words so your daughter will shine.
I celebrate knowing that dreams do come true.
