Daddy’s Girl

Kenana

(2008 Kenana was 8 years old)
She is daddy’s girl, she has no shame

To his heart, she has a claim

Her striking eyes emanate a flame

To cheer him up, to entice hope

And with life to help him cope

Her smile makes his day

Her hug makes him gay

Her kiss put him at peace

Her voice is a tension release

From the instant of her birth scream

She has been a radiant beam

In the darkest nights a shining gleam

He spoiled her with his love

She is his little free dove

Her name is “my” Kenana

She is the tree in his savanna

Will she be the same in her teens?

Will she remain his only queen?

She is daddy’s girl, she has no shame

For his life is no more the same
