The sun rises above the hillcrest
as does the joy of my heart
rays of warmth and love
from her it will never depart.
Fresh dew upon the grass
young birds chirp in their nests
I watch her gently sleep
my love to her I silently profess.
I enjoy the stillness and calm
watching as she smiles and dreams
she brings me to stillness and peace
like that of a slow flowing stream.
My heart and soul flow with love
and I smile as I quietly reflect
I have been handed a sweet princess
a sweet princess to love and to protect
A vow to myself I make
as she quietly sleeps away
to love and always cherish her
until my last breath
until my last day
