Daughter…


In my lifetime I have met/known great men that you don’t want to be in their bad side. For example, you take my dad…a wonderful guy, but don’t make him upset. Or a good friend of mines…great man to be with, but don’t get on his bad side…But all these men I have had the pleasure to meet…have one thing in common, they “melt” when their in the presence of their daughter…Their daughter has stolen their heart…just like mine has done to me…

These two poems are dedicated to my daughter and every other daughter out there…Whether your dad is still here or not, one thing that I can tell you with a 100% certainty he “loves you”

Enjoy and please share…

In Your Heart

He was so proud of his little girl
It was her very first day of school
He walked with her to school that day
And she held his hand all the way
They walked together quiet and sad
A little girl and her loving dad
Into the school her father led
But he almost cried when she said
Daddy, Daddy please don’t go
Don’t leave me here all alone
I’ll miss you if you go away
And I might need you, can’t you stay
Little Daughter please don’t cry
You’ll be okay so dry your eyes
You have our memories in your heart
We’re together though we’re apart
He sat up front on her wedding day
And cried as his daughter walked away
Later that night he watched her dance
He sat there waiting for his chance
The band started to play their song
Father and daughter danced along
She looked at him and saw a tear
Then leaned and whispered in his ear
Daddy, Daddy I have to go
I hate to leave you all alone
I’ll miss you when I go away
But if you need me then I’ll stay
Little Daughter I’ll be just fine
I’ll love you always you are mine
I have our memories in my heart
We’re together though we’re apart
She came in his room and kissed his head
Then sat next to his hospital bed
He took her hand and held it tight
And wished he had the strength to fight
They sat together quiet and sad
A daughter and her dying dad
He saw the tears she tried to hide
She looked at him and then she cried
Daddy, Daddy please don’t go
Don’t leave me here all alone
I’ll miss you when you go away
I still need you, you have to stay
Little Daughter I love you so
I want to stay but have to go
I’ll always be here in your heart
We’re together though we’re apart

I Am Yours To Keep

You are a princess in my heart,
and I care for you so much.
I love the fondness in you eyes and your tender little touch.
I looked at you when you were born,
and knew then straight away,
that I would be forever here
to watch you grow and play.
You bring to me a heart of joy,
and memories so great,
and a powerful sense of fatherhood that no one can debate.
I watch you sleep and dream of things that I can only wonder.
That innocent look upon your face just makes my heart grow fonder.
I see you run and jump and shout and calling out my name.
No love that I have ever known could ever feel the same.
No suffering or tragedy nor deeply seated pain
could ever over shadow the bond that we retain.
And so my little princess before you go to sleep,
Remember I am your daddy and I am yours to keep.
