A poetic letter that a father could give or read to his daughter for her wedding day.


My Precious Daughter,
When you first looked into my eyes and clinched your ‘Daddy’s’ hand
My heart was overcome with love only I could understand
I promised then I’d keep you safe through each day of your life
Yet, all the while, I knew you’d grow to be a loving wife
Over the years, you’ve brought much joy to your Mother and me
Your beauty and kindheartedness have paved your destiny
My girl this day, your destiny brings your husband’s hand to hold
As you begin this journey of new memories to unfold
Again, this day, you’ll clinch my hand as we walk down the aisle
You’ll look into your Daddy’s eyes and, once again, I’ll smile
My heart will overflow with love and everlasting pleasure
Knowing my precious little girl has found her man to treasure
I’ll welcome him into our home and family life we share
I’ll always pray he treats you with utmost respect and care
I’ll let you go, you’ll take his hand, you’ll spread your wings and fly
But, sweetheart, know he’ll ne’er love you nearly as much as I.

I can imagine how hard it is for any parent to let go of a child. But at some point must. A well written and touching write Jill.

Very beautiful Jill and very well penned. I know from experience that no father wants to let go of his baby girl. For the happiness and joys of the memories they both shared are now to be shared with her husband. Like your daughter your poem is precious as well. George AKA THE WISE OLD OWL

Very heartfelt read, nice rhyming poem.

The hardest thing a parent does, it let go of her child to follow the dreams her child holds dear. This letter may be written in the hears of thousands, if not millions of fathers as they watch their "little girl" walk down the aisle, her arm in his one last time before the sweet kiss of her husband takes hold. This is very beautiful Jill and it is also a sweet, endearing tribute from fathers all over the world to their lovely daughters. Dang! Where are those tissues.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie
