I have a daughter,
She’s my world—
Because I love her with all my heart.
Her happiness is important to me—
So, I worry about the decisions she makes.
I become distressed,
When she acts independently—
I know she can’t help it,
That she’s unmarried.
But who am I upset at,
Is it her, is it myself, or The Creator—
Am I the only one,
Who’s anxious about her future?
And even though, I’m her defender,
Lately I’ve been feeling sickly and feeble-minded—
For I don’t know,
How much longer—I’ll be able.
She’s been waiting for a brave suitor,
To be her husband and protector.
But, it sounds like the train has left the station,
And I don’t hear another one coming.
For it seems like modern men,
Have lost their ambition to marry,
And to provide for a family.
And even though, most are lacking vision,
What matters most is the devotion.
All over the land, countless dads
Are pleading for their daughters,
That she will be in God’s Heart,
And for our world to be in His Hands.
