A nymph,
  eyes merrily dancing,
    gleeful grin,
      thinking merry-go-round thoughts
        of cotton candy
          and pink elves in a Tinkerbell forest

A princess
  in her daddy's eyes
    growing, learning;
      innocent beauty now
        to foster future heartbreak
          of some romantic beau

A carefree, cheerful radiance
  of love and joy,
    worries none
      of trials unknown,
        happy for now;
          keep smiling, sweet one.
