Daddy’s Little Girl

Brown Haired, blue-eyed angel
That’s Daddy’s little girl
He quickly held her close to him
When she came into this world

With loving hands and a gentle heart
He taught her right from wrong
However, before she knew it
Her Daddy would be gone

For her Daddy was very sick
Even though it was hard to understand
Until that dreadful day in November
When God took him by the hand

Now her Daddy’s gone from Earth
And when she calls his name
He doesn’t come running to her anymore
Yet she loves him just the same

Daddy’s little girl, thankful for her Dad
Has peace in knowing, he’s in a good place
Even though she’ll miss hearing his voice
And seeing his smiling face

For Daddy’s little girl, now out on her own
Has to settle for the memories of the man
And raise his grandson to know him
The best way that she can

How desperately she’d love to have
Her Daddy here with her
She didn’t know the love she lost 
or how cherished the memories were

Daddy’s little girl is so lost without him being near
Even though it's hard for her, she comprehends
No matter how much you love someone
One day their time here ends

I’ll always be your little girl Daddy
My love for you will never part
For you reside in Heaven
And forever in my heart

I have been thinking about my dad a lot lately. This poem is wonderful.  He died on November 19, 2005. I miss him so much.
