I walked beside the mountain streams,
by Knial R. Bateman
Adored the mystic starlit sky
And built my castles in my dreams
As endless time was passing by.
A zephyr whispered in my ear
Of secrets hidden along the way,
To be discovered some distant year
And guide my footsteps every day.
They told of wonderful things to be,
The night wind, stars and sky;
I wish I had known they were telling me
You would be my Daughter by and by.
Perhaps it was their sly intent
When they made this vow to me;
A flower from heaven shall be sent
To warm your heart eternally.
Because of you, my world is made divine
And shadows will never linger near.
God picked the brightest star and made it mine
to love and cherish always, "Daughter Dear".
