Did you notice?

Did you notice?
How I worked everything out today?
How the sun shone just right today,
and the breeze blew just the way it
needed to to make you feel the way
I wanted you to feel?

Did you notice?
How you woke up feeling right today?
How even when your nights have weeping,
even while you cry in sleeping,
I'm still holding you and I bring
to you your joy again?

Did you notice?
How the little girls smiled up at you?
How they wanted you to play their mother,
wanting you and not another,
and how it made you feel inside,
so special and so right?

Did you notice?
How the whispered prayers were answered?
How when you felt weak,
I was still strong and gave you
all the strength that you would need
to get through every moment?

Did you notice?
How the eyes sparkled to reflect your own?
How when the smiles danced and shone
you felt peace and love alone
and all around you, you could see
My love is like no other?

In case you hadn't noticed,
all of this,
every single second
of every single moment
of every single hour
of every single day,
is what I'm doing for you.
I want you to know how much I love you.

Your Father
