If I could write a poem
I would say to you
All the love you have for me
I have that love for you.
From the moment we received you
Our hearts were filled with joy
So happy to have a lovely girl
You were like a Christmas toy.
And as you grew from day to day
So joyous, happy and gay
You added happiness to our life
For you were all that we could want
A child could ever be
A heart filled with joy and love
For all the family
And as the years have passed away
You have always been to me
The same sweet daughter that I loved
In days that used to be.
Poem written by Walter Parley Haggard to his daughter Vida Haggard
