Just Because

From two there now were three -
Before, the nurse, gave you to me -
I’d never held, a baby girl, like you.
And I could not have been more clueless -
Or overwhelmed by so much newness -
Until I saw, it was all new, to you too.

First steps, first falls, 3AM wakeup calls,
Don’t cry... just a bad dream & that’s all -
Love is as love does... what will be will be what was...
And when you ask me “Daddy, why?” I will tell you, just because.

Starting at a brand new school -
Making friends, acting cool -
Weekend slumber parties in the den.
Sweet sixteen comes on so fast -
Let up the clutch now give it gas -
Have a good time, but be home by ten.

I don’t know why he’d break your heart & make your world all come apart -
Getting strong means sometime getting scarred.
Love is as love does... what will be will be what was...
And when you ask me “Daddy, why?” I will tell you, just because.

I hope you learn from my mistakes...
Don’t waste your time, on users, fools & fakes...
Love can’t be sought for love’s own sake...
True happiness is what you make...
It’s all about what you give not what you let them take.

Grand Canyon: a long way down -
Careful where you stand your ground -
But what’s the point, if you just wait in the car?

I-dos, rings & kisses, may I present Mr. & Mrs -
Your first dance now this one’s ours.
Love is as love does... what will be will be what was...
And when you ask me “Daddy, why?” I will tell you, just because...

...I will tell you just because.
