“Mine and my dad’s song is ‘Butterfly Kisses,'” Taylor explained to me as we hung out in her bridal suite right before the wedding ceremony.
Taylor pulled out her iPhone and asked a family member to send her dad to the bridal room. He walked in with a big smile and absolutely no idea what was about to happen. She pushed play…
With no one else around (well, except for me), Taylor and her father shared a dance to their song. One I’m sure neither of them will ever forget.
… 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.”
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 her 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…
