I never knew you could love someone this deeply before you even know them. But I do. I love her.

I love her more than risk can quench. More than security. More than comfort. More than rest.

I can feel her chest heaving against my right breast bone as her sleepy hair tickles the nook of my neck and I can hear her rhythmic breathing. It sings to me a song as old as love. I love her more than life. I can see the tears in her eyes when she’s hurt by someone. I love her till it hurts. I can hear her sweet voice singing to herself as the sun makes music through the windows and sets her dancing. I love her more than words. I can taste her cheeks as I kiss her goodnight and whisper sugar in her ears and I love her more than food and drink. I can smell her fears wafting from an anxious heart that I will defend to the death. And I love her more than risk can quench. More than security. More than comfort. More than rest.

I never knew you could love someone this immensely having never met them face to face. But I love her now in ways that cannot be expressed. After all, a fathers love is more than the capacity of vocabulary and daughters are a gift so sweet that love can do nothing but to grow.
