Here’s a song I wrote for my almost-6-year-old daughter Sophia. I’m posting it today because tonight is our father-daughter dance, an event she’s been talking about for, oh, about the past 364 days since last year’s dance.
I wrote and recorded this in 2008, during a period in which I was living in the St. Louis area and my wife and two younger children were still in Florida. I was alone, and missing my family — and especially my little girl. You can hear some of that in my voice. In fact, by the end I was all choked up!
Tonight the DJ is supposed to play this song for us and for the other fathers and daughters. I hope we all savor the moment. They go by too quickly.
