I would call out “Daddy”
when was angry, scared or sad.
When I thought Jennifer was hogging you,
you would stay with me like glue.
You’d talk to me, tell me don’t be scared,
I could always tell you cared.
When my friends were mad at me you’d stay throughout the night,
you would be there for me and hold me tight.
You were someone I loved that I could call,
you would help me when I would fall.
You’d kiss my boo boo and make it better,
when I went to camp you’d write me a letter.
You would write how much you loved me
and said that with you I wish I could be.
While I was reading I would grin
as I would wish the same back to him.
We would play games for hours on end,
whenever I had a broken heart you would mend.
In restaurants while waiting to go,
we would play tic-tac-toe to get three in a row.
I wish that you would walk through the door,
because I miss you more and more.
I know that you are in a better place,
but I am selfish in this case.
I wish that I could have you back in my arms,
to see your special smile and charms.
I miss your smile, your care, your love.
You remind me of a precious dove.
I love you with all my heart,
but you’ve known that from the start.
I know the world will still go on,
even though my loved one’s gone.
