The Lion Sleeps Tonight

Awaiting the day of arrival

Looking into your eyes for the first time

Heart wrapped around your finger

Crawling along the floor

Pulling up to walk some more

First day of school, following the bus to ensure you’re not scared

School plays, recitals and field trips

Watching you scrape your knees when you fall on the ground

Holding you close as tears abound

Family trips, holidays and so much more

Into a young lady you grow so quick

Days go by, weeks than years

Graduation day is soon here

Watching you strike out on your own

Soon a young man catches your eye

Down the aisle I lead you, with a tear in my eye

So proud I am to watch you grow from the baby girl I held so close

To the fine you woman you have become

Always remember that, “In the Jungle, the mighty Jungle the Lion Sleeps Tonight”

Love Dad
