What Matters Most

I missed a lot of things while I was gone, and the one thing that I missed that really gets to me is my daughter's graduation

Embrace who you are,

And love like a fool.

Try not to judge,

And never be cruel.

Hold your head high,

And never look back,

Give all you can,

And never hold back.

Laugh like a clown,

And cry like the rain.

Remember with the price of peace

There sometimes comes pain.

Always care for your family

Because too soon they're gone.

Forgive and forget,

And try to live on.

Face all your fears,

And try to be brave.

If you remember love is the answer,

Then you'll always be saved.

Don't compare yourself to others,

Or you'll always be vain.

Remember you're one of God's flowers,

And none of them plain.

You're the light in my life

And the love in my heart.

I knew you were special from the very first start.

When I first held you close,

And I whispered your name,

I knew that my life would never be the same.

I love you, my girl,

From the very first day,

And a team of wild horses couldn't drag me away,

So remember these words on your special day,

And daddy's girl you'll always stay.
