I love my daughter so much. I've loved her since before she was born. Once she was born, I experienced love in an entirely different and seemingly magical way. Instantly, she had my entire being. All the love I could muster and possibly more, is what I wanted for her. That feeling has continued to grow stronger and stronger over time. Love evolving from giving to her to wanting for her, to desiring for her and praying for her. Love for her beats so strong that it feels like it's become my heartbeat. Love that misses her presence and sometimes sheds tears when she is away. I never knew I could love like this. I never knew love could hurt so much. I never knew love like this, but now I do. My life is much more fulfilled. My purpose is much more complete; to make sure she always knows, feels and believes that her Daddy loves her. Nothing or no one or no thing can ever change that fact. Daughter, don't let anybody tell you different. I love you as much as we need air to breathe, as much as water is wet, as much as the heavens are high above the Earth, as much as the stars number the galaxy. As much as God is. I love you.
