I did not write the underlying poem but have loved it for years. 
 I am at heart now and always will be, a Daddy's girl.
Thank you Dad.  For being my hero,
my teacher,
my caretaker,
my confidant,
my father,
my friend.
I will love you forever.
 
* * * * *

As my father sees me, so shall I.
As a daughter, all my self-worth comes from how much my father values me.
The amount of affection he pays me as a child is what I will expect from a mate.
The respect he shows my mother will be what I will tolerate from a husband.
The time invested in me as a child will equal the amount of time I invest in him during his "golden years". 
How he sees me will be how I will see myself. 
A little girl becomes exactly what her father says she is. 
In short, I will be the product of what you do and say around me, to me, and to others.
No compliment or blessing is any higher than that of my Daddy's. 
How you see me is how I will be.
The least little comment, especially negative, I will take to heart.
You think the sun will rise and set with me, but without you, I have no world.
You are my daddy, and little girls NEED their daddies.
