For Dad

by | Nov 16, 2007 | Poetry | 0 comments

You gave me life
You nurtured me
You taught me right from wrong
You instilled in me a love of life
And taught me to be strong;
To face whatever life threw at me
Head on, don’t run away.
But you’ve gone now from this life
And I miss you every day

I am so proud to be your daughter, dad
But it’s hard to be strong when you’re hurting
When everything reminds me of you
Perhaps one day I’ll smile again
I know you’d want me too
You know I was a daddy’s girl
You were the first love of my life
So sleep safely my adored daddy
Till we meet again
