Butterfly Kisses

There’s two things I know for sure
She was sent here from heaven – and she’s Daddy’s Little Girl
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
She talks to Jesus – and I close my eyes
And I thank God for all of the joy in my life – Oh but most of all…

For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
Sticking little white flowers all up in hair
“Walk beside the pony Daddy – It’s my first ride
I know the cake looks funny Daddy – But I sure tried”
Oh with all that I’ve done wrong I must have done something right2,3
To deserve a hug every morning – and butterfly kisses at night…

Sweet 16 today
She’s looking like her momma – a little more every day
One part woman – the other part girl
To perfume and make-up – from ribbons and curls
Trying her wings out in a great big world – But I remember…

Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
Sticking little white flowers all up in hair
“You know how much I love you Daddy – But if you don’t mind
I’m only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time”
Oh with all that I’ve done wrong – I must have done something right
To deserve her love every morning – and butterfly kisses at night

All the precious time – Oh like the wind the years go by
Precious butterfly – Spread your wings and fly

She’ll change her name today
She’ll make a promise – and I’ll give her away
Standing in the brideroom just staring at her
She asks me what I’m thinking – and I said “I’m not sure
I just feel like I’m losing my baby girl”
She leaned over…

Gave me butterfly kisses with her momma there
Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair
“Walk me down the aisle Daddy – It’s just about time
Does my wedding gown look pretty Daddy? – Daddy don’t cry”
Oh with all that I’ve done wrong – I must have done something right
To deserve her love every morning – and butterfly kisses
I couldn’t ask God for more – man this is what love is
I know I’ve got to let her go – But I’ll always – remember…
Every hug in the morning – and butterfly kisses….
