Dear daughter, I tiptoed in your room tonight and I looked down at
You smilin' in your sleep. You were so lovely my heart nearly broke;
And I thought how much like Sleeping Beauty a little girl is. When I
Tuck you in at night I never know how old you'll be when you wake. One
Evening you crawl on your dad's lap and throw your arms around his neck,
The next morning you might be much too grown up for that sort of thing.

You're so quickly approaching the awkward age, too young to drive the
Car and yet too old to be carried in the house half asleep on daddy's
Shoulder. I have a secret that I've never told you, Sleeping Beauty,
You're going on a very exciting trip. You'll travel from yesterday all
The way to tomorrow. It's a rapid journey and you'll travel light,
Leaving behind you measles, mumps, freckles, bumps, bubble gum and me.

I promise not to feel too hurt when you discover that the world is more
