Daughter (an acrostic poem)

Dad lost his heart that first time he held you
As you cried insistently in his arms
Under the hospital’s bright lights
Growing up he watches you and marvels
Here was the baby that needed everything
There is the young woman who claims to know everything
Entering her time to solo on the world’s stage
Remembering the first time he held you
