His Picture In Your Eyes
©
Copyright George Papavgeris, September 2001
A fatherís goodbye to his daughterís childhood

Little girl, you are growing
And I am so afraid.
You're speeding as I'm slowing, and
You'll soon be miles ahead.
Little girl wait a minute
And give me one more chance.
Just come and sit beside me
And let me hold your hands.

What did you do with your dolls?
Where is your box of toys?
Where did you learn to dress so
And speak free with the boys?
Where is the puppy fat gone?
Where are the dimples now?
You still will give me cuddles, but
They seem too short somehow.

Seems it was only last year
When we walked down the street
Three little steps to my one,
A blur of little feet.
I'd carry you on my shoulders
Again, if only I could.
I'd smother you with kisses
But I'm not sure I should.

You're only sixteen years old
Still haven't finished school.
How can you look so grown up
And make me feel a fool?
I should have given up work.
I should have stayed at home.
I should have spent more time with you
But now my chance is blown.

CHORUS
For when you are together
Your love you can't disguise
Heart lighter than a feather
His picture in your eyes.
