(Barbie Kelley)

I've waited so long for this dance with you
And I have so many things I'd really like to say
But I know that my heart will overflow with words
And my tears will get in the way

I want you to know that I love you
And I'll cherish this moment for the rest of my life
And I want you to know that I'm so proud of you
And all that you've taught me to be
And all who you've taught me to be

The love and respect that you've given to me
Is the love and respect I pray that I'll share
And the times that you've prayed as I made my mistakes
Has made who I am today

There's so much more that I wish I could say
But these feelings I can't put into words...

This song was written for my father. I wrote it for our wedding, so we wouldn't have to use the traditional "Father/Daughter Dance" songs. I love listening to it, because it truly takes me back every time. I know that I'll cherish the memory of this dance with my dad forever.
