~ Butterfly Kisses ~



 ~ Butterfly Kisses ~
Bob Carlisle

 There's two things I know for sure
She was sent here from heaven
And she's Daddy's little girl
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes
And I thank God for all of the joy in my life
Oh, but most of all for . . .

Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
"Walk beside the pony, Daddy, it's my first ride,
I know the cake looks funny, Daddy, but I sure tried".
Oh, with all that I've done wrong,
I must have done something right
To deserve a hug every morning
And butterfly kisses at night.

~ Sweet 16 Today . . .

 She's lookin' like her mama a little more every day
One part woman, the other part girl
To perfume and make-up, from ribbons and curls
Trying her wings out in a great big world
But I remember . . .

 Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer;
Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair.
"You know how much I love you, Daddy,
But if you don't mind; I'm only gonna kiss
You on the cheek this time".
With all that I've done wrong, To deserve her love every morning
and butterfly kisses at night.

 All the precious time
Like the wind, the years go by.
Precious butterfly, spread your wings and fly.

 She'll change her name today
She'll make a promise and I'll give her away
Standing in the bride room just staring at her
She asked me what I'm thinking, and I said,
I'm not sure, I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl"
And she leaned over . . . and gave me
“Butterfly Kisses”

 With her mama there, sticking little white flowers
All up in her hair . . .
"Walk me down the aisle, Daddy,
It's just about time".
"Does my wedding gown look pretty, Daddy?
Daddy, don't cry"!

 Oh, with all that I've done wrong
I must have done something right.
To deserve your love every morning
And, butterfly kisses. I couldn't ask God for more,
Man this is what love is.

 I know I gotta let her go,
But I'll always remember every hug in the morning and
butterfly kisses . . .
