Butterfly Kisses Muaahsss

My childhood dream, revealed

I heart dis song since I can’t even remember. One thing I’m sure, it was wayyy long ago ever since my father was around.

During that time, I remembered imagining ayah's reaction during my wedding day.. I also imagined how ayah wud feel as narrated in the lyrics,

She'll change her name today
She'll make a promise and I'll give her away
Standing in the bride-room just staring at her
She asked me what I'm thinking and I said "I'm not sure..
I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl."

Aaaaaahhhh.. The feeling... is so pure.. and honest.. But it all didn’t happen.. Ayah wasn’t the one who handed me over to my hubby.. He wasn’t there.. :-(

Ever since, this song was neva the same to me.. this song touched me deeply.. so deep till my tears fall..

I neva dreamt for huge wedding of the year, but I did dream it wud be a great one, where all our families will gather.. mama & ayah wud be the busiest ppl walking everywhere to greet everyone.. Indeed, the wedding in 2006 was still beautiful to me.. so many family members were there.. both from mama & ayah's sides.. the only piece of puzzle missing was my ayah..

Secretly, I alwaiz feel ayah's presence.. I believe he was there throughout the event, sitting quietly at a corner, with a tongkat in his hand, and his medicines as well, with his green baju melayu, looking very tired, yet neva stop smiling..

hmm.. I believe every girl has their own wedding dream. if you are happen to be a part of it, make it the best, coz she'll surely remember every little thing happened that day.

westlife also had sung the cover version of this song.. but I still prefer the song to be sung by Bob Carlisle.. his voice sounded "more fatherly" I believe..

to my dearest hubby, father to our princess (princesses in future), i dedicated the song to you.. I know you wud love the song too..

There's two things I know for sure
She was sent here from heaven and she's daddy's little girl.
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
She talks to *** and I close my eyes
and I thank god for all the joy in my life
Oh, but most of all

For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
sticking little white flowers all up in her hair
"Walk beside the pony, Daddy, it's my first ride."
"I know the cake looks funny, Daddy, but I sure tried."
In all that I've done wrong I know I musthave done something right
to deserve a hug every morning
and butterfly kisses at night.

Sweet 16 today
She's looking like her mama a little more everyday
One part woman, the other part girl
To perfume and make-up, from ribbons and curls
Trying her wings out in a great big world.
But I remember

Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
sticking little white flowers all up in her hair
"You know how much I love you, Daddy
But if you don't mind
I'm only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time."
Oh With all that I've done wrong I must have done something right
to deserve her love every morning
and butterfly kisses at night.

All the precious time
Like the wind, the years go by
Precious butterfly
Spread your wings and fly

She'll change her name today
She'll make a promise and I'll give her away
Standing in the bride-room just staring at her
She asked me what I'm thinking and I said "I'm notsure..
I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl."
She leaned over...
Gave me butterfly kisses with her mama there
Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair
"Walk me down the aisle, Daddy
it's just about time."
"Does my wedding gown look pretty, Daddy?
Daddy, don't cry!"

Oh, with all that I've done wrong I must have done something right
To deserve your love every morning and butterfly kisses
I couldn't ask God for more, man this is what love is
I know I gotta let her go, but I'll always remember
every hug in the morning and butterfly kisses.
