A letter to daughter

Hello, I'm 50 years old father and I have the only daughter. I'm so sad to know how time flies so fast.. She's 21 years old now. I'm sad to know that she's getting older. Honestly, I'm not ready to watch her grow but I have to.
I wish she knew that I really love her. Even though sometimes I just can't show her how much I love her.

 Does she know that I always worry when she hasn't reached home at night?
Does she know that I always worry if she replaces me with another man?
Does she know that I'm afraid that I can't give her the best of me?
Does she know that I remind your mom to text you?
Does she know that I remind your mom to call you and make sure you're fine?
Does she know that I'm afraid if I fail to take care of you?
Does she know that I really want to cry and hug you tight when you have to leave home?
Does she know that I could just say "take care" and wipe my tears?
Does she know that I work hard and make money for you?
Does she realize that?


My daughter...
I still remember that time we played together
I still remember that time we went to mall and asked for a doll
I still remember that time you danced and sang for me
I still remember that time you won and said "I'm the winner, daddy!"
I still remember that time you called me every night when I wasn't home
I still remember you said "good night daddy" and kissed me
I still remember you whispered to me "I love you daddy"
And other good memories I can't ever forget..



My daughter...
I'm sorry if I can't fulfil your need, I just dont want to spoil you..
I'm sorry if I get mad if you make mistake, I just want you to be a good girl..
I'm sorry for being overprotective, I just want you to live a good life..
I'm sorry I don't let you to come home late, because I know that nightlife is bad..
I'm sorry for making too many rules, I just dont wan't you take a wrong path..

But dear, you should know that
I'm the one who will be proud to see you graduate soon..
I'm the one who will smile to see you become a person you want to be..
I'm the one who will cry to see you have a new life with the right man you choose someday..
I won't let anybody hurt you..
I don't want to see you cry..
I'll always be your first love..
I'll always do my best for you..

Oh my beloved daughter, I just want you to know that I love you...so much.
No matter how old you are, you're still daddy's little girl.

Regards,
Your old father.
