they say that from the instant he lays eyes on her,
 a father adores his daughter.
whoever she grows up to be,
she is always to him that little girl in pigtails.
She makes him feel like Christmas.
 in exchange,
 he makes a secret promise
 not to see the awkwardness of her teenage years,
the mistakes she makes or the secrets she keeps.
