Gently she smiles at me...

When I act a bit too silly,
Or climb the monkey bars,
When I dance to elevator music,
Gently she smiles at me.

When I put on a silly hat,
Or just skip in the mall,
When I sing for all to hear,
Gently she smiles at me.

When I make her friends eyes raise,
Or burb, just for effect,
When I blast my classic rock,
Gently she smiles at me.

But when she knows no one sees,
She acts up just like me,
Daddy’s girl growing up.
Gently she smiles at me,

Gently she smiles at me...

Artist's Description

My Megan is 11 and reached that wonderful age of seriousness. I am 38 and have reached that age of silliness (about 36 years ago…lol). I am always amused at how she accepts, to a point, my inate need to embarass my children. For some reason I do not embarass her, though I do try..LOL
Even now I hear her voice, “It’s okay its just Daddy.”

I love you Megan!

This is part of a series of three, a poem for each of my Daughters,
