Daddy's girl

I watch
as she sits staring up at the giant beside her.
Eyes wide and bulging in awe, she adores him.
Each movement makes her smile reach further
from ear to ear.

He scoops her up in his arms; my heart melts
I can feel the love, she feels safe in his grasp.
They are lost in each other, my two angels dancing.
Contrasting in their looks
he bold and striking
her soft and downy.

I'm standing in the doorway
a silent spectator
I have never loved two people so much.
Those smiling dark eyes catch my gaze
I know them by heart.
I feel my own eyes start to well
as I'm waved over to complete the picture.
