Title: Cinderella Current mood: thankful

I fell in love with her from the moment she looked at me. After all, how could I ever resist those beautiful eyes starring back at me straight into my soul. She is so beautiful in so many ways. Every time we’re together I find myself smiling without having a reason. Just being around her warms my heart and makes my day every time. I've known this girl for sometime now, and even though we sometimes don’t see each other often, our love for each other remains the same. I sometimes think about what my life would be like if she and I had never met. We have been through so much together in life already, one can only hope that our road ahead in time will get a little smoother for both of us. It’s so hard to explain how much I love her. She has stood by me through thick and thin. Always there when I needed her the most.
She is, and always will be, my one true love. Every hug and kiss between us becomes a little more special each time. She is so caring and full of life. Always working hard to be the best she can be. It used be I was the one that set an example for her to follow. Now every time I turn around, she shows me something new. If I had to compare her to anything, I guess the word I would use is AIR. Why? Because without air, I couldn’t live. She’s the part of me that has kept me breathing. When I was at my lowest point in my life, it was her who picked me up. It was her who told me how much she loved me. It was her who showed me that love everyday. When I cried on the outside, she cried on the inside. When I prayed for her, she was praying for me.
She will always be my Cinderella. The hardest part of loving her is the thought of letting go. It won’t be long, and my Cinderella will be gone. Midnight is fast approaching. Soon the ball will be over, and Cinderella will be leaving me for a new dance. The dance of life. If your still wondering who Cinderella is, She is my Daughter Cassandra. Oh, Cinderella. How you’ve grown. Time is always ticking away. The only difference between my Cinderella and the one in the fairy tale is, I know without a doubt the slipper she leaves me will always fit the most precious part of my life………. My Little Girl.
I Love You Cassandra, Love Always, Dad~

Jacqueline ApplewhiteThis is a wonderfully written piece and deserves the credit that it got in the winner's circle as number one! You truly paint a picture with words as your canvass. You draw us in, thinking you are talking about your wife, and then you surprise us by a special bond between father and daughter on HER wedding day! I really enjoyed it. Congratulations and many more wins to come! JackieUSA10/8/2011 7:24:50 PM

Marcia SchechingerCongratulations Dale on winning the August 2011 Writers contest. This is a beautiful true story of a love that will never die, for nothing can compare to a father's love for his daughter. Upon reading Dale, this gave me goosebumps as I remember my own daughters as they left me to start their own lives. Cassandra sounds as lovely as Cinderella herself. A beautiful keepsake poem for your daughter to hold forever. Congrats Dale!!USA9/26/2011 10:56:30 AM
