Good morning! I’d like to take a moment to welcome back Ed ireland and his poem, Alexa Dawn, from his book, Forgotten Treasure, available on his website (Check links below).
Alexa Dawn by Ed Ireland
Curious little fingers in places they shouldn’t be,
Smiles the defense on everything done wrong
Infectious laughter and mischievous little eyes
I couldn’t live a day without my Alexa Dawn
Arguing to stay awake hours after bedtime calls
Waking up to greet the day with fuzzy slippers on
Asking if I want a drink from a very wet sippy cup
I wouldn’t trade a day that has my Alexa Dawn
She’s Daddy’s Little Princess and carries it in style
Pretty in pink even when singing an off-key song
Happiest when her Babe joins her on a play piano
I couldn’t imagine a life without my Alexa Dawn
Serving make believe tea and make believe cookies
Outrageous and outlandish and never ever withdrawn
As full of life and love and happiness as any child could be
My own life is truly blessed because of Alexa Dawn
About the poem: Of course fathers love their sons but it is the daughters who truly capture them. The smiles, the hugs and the laughter all create a web that every man is willing to allow himself to be wrapped in.
Awsome poem, and thank you for letting me share it, Ed. 🙂
