I came across an old box in the corner of the attic
Of long forgotten treasures of the past
Clips of old newspaper, locks of hair and little ribbons
And some four for a dollar photographs

And I found this old love letter on big construction paper
Little hands created long ago
Printed big block letters in bright Crayola blue
You're the bestest Daddy, Daddy I love you

There were several others in that box that brought a smile
And one or two that had me laugh out loud
But they could not compare to the love that I'd found there
Printed in that bright Crayola blue

As she grew up and struggled with the choices to be made
I helped her get back up the times she'd fall
And though she never knew it was her love that got me through
The times I had my back against the wall

Now Daddy's little girl's half grown and gone away to college
Another act in life's big passion play
When I miss her most, it's her words that get me through
You're the bestest Daddy, Daddy I love you

Oh there were several others in that box that brought a smile
And one or two that had me laugh out loud
But they could not compare to the love that I'd found there
Printed in that bright Crayola blue
It's true

I came across an old box in the corner of the attic
Of long forgotten treasures of the past
Clips of old newspaper, locks of hair and little ribbons
And some four for a dollar photographs
And some four for a dollar photographs
