Lil Bit the begining

A precious baby girl
Wrapped in cotton and lace
Given the cheeks of a cherub
And the most angel like face
A princess she wasn't
Not a fairy tale one
But a tomboy with pigtails
Who always had fun
She loved to get dirty
And prove she was strong
Always challenging the boys
And egging them on
It started with football
Before she could stand
Her dad was the coach
And she was his fan
She had passion for sports
The older she grew
By the time she could speak
Dad already knew
He put a ball in her hands
One day just to see
What his princess could do
At the age of just three
Her first basketball game
She had just hit age four
With her dad on the sideline
She tore up the floor
I gave up right that instant
What I wanted for my daughter
There couldn't possibly be anything
Like this bond with her father
It was that precise moment
Dreams of ribbons and lace
Were never as important
As the smile on her face
But we still thank the lord
That she wasn't a son
And will forever be great full
We were blessed with just one!

My daughter had always wanted me to write a poem about her because when her brothers were born I wrote one for each of them. On her 18th birthday at midnight I gave her what she wanted.
