I rang home this morning to speak to Alice who is 13 but is still (and always will be) my little girl. It’s the first time I’ve not been there to share her birthday with her so I written this for her (I can see her cringing now!)
Happy birthday my little girl
I love your good humour and your sense of fun, your kindness to others and the good looks inherited from your mum (obviously). I hope i don’t make you cringe too much and you will come to like my “crocs with socks” and maybe, just maybe you’ll even think that your dad rocks.
As I sit here so far away
With the wind upon my Brow
I wish I could be with you
To give you a daddy kiss right now
