Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. Elizabeth Stone

There is no stronger need in childhood, than the need for a father’s protection.S. Freud.
She’s got her Father’s eyes, her Father’s eyes: Eyes that find the good in things,
When good is not around.
Eyes that find the source of help,
When help just can’t be found.
Eyes full of compassion, seeing every pain. Knowin’ what you’re going through,
and feeling it the same.
Just like my Father’s eyes,
my Father’s eyes. Amy Grant

Blessed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father. Lydia M. Child, in Philothea

Father and Daughter

If you leap awake
In the mirror of a bad dream
And for a fraction of a second
You can’t remember where you are
Just open your window
And follow your memory upstream
To the meadow in the mountain
Where we counted every falling star

I believe the light that shines on you
Will shine on you forever
And though I can’t guarantee
There’s nothing scary hiding under your bed
I’m gonna stand guard
Like a postcard of a Golden Retriever
And never leave till I leave you
With a sweet dream in your head

I’m gonna watch you shine
Gonna watch you grow
Gonna paint a sign
So you’ll always know
As long as one and one is two
There could never be a father
Who loved his daughter more than I love you

Trust your intuition
It’s just like going fishing
You cast your line
And hope you’ll get a bite
But you don’t need to waste your time
Worrying about the market place
Try to help the human race
Struggling to survive its harshest night

I’m gonna watch you shine
Gonna watch you grow
Gonna paint a sign
So you’ll always know
As long as one and one is two
There could never be a father
Who loved his daughter more than I love you

Paul Simon
