It’s a feeling that I’ve never felt,
Nor have I ever known.
Yet from the moment you were born,
This feeling along with you has grown.

From the moment of your first smile,
To the giggle from your lips.
I knew as long as I had you in my life,
It really couldn’t be any happier than this.

When you took your first steps,
Called me daddy by name.
I knew right there and then,
My life wasn’t in vain.

So when I look at you smiling,
With a smell rising from your nappy,
I know with everyday that follows,
All I want is for you to be happy.
