A Poem To My Daughter


I love hearing your voice
When we’re on the phone…
I tear up when you say
Daddy, where did you go…?
Cause of my job
It takes me away from home…
And every time that I’m gone
I feel jus all alone…
I got movies of you
Jus to see you smile…
And I gotta to say baby
You’re my wonderful child…
When you smile
Nothing can hold me down…
When you frown
I will turn the world upside down…
I hold you in my arms
When you sleep at night…
In the morning you come to my room and say
Daddy, pick me up and hold me tight…
I will give you all the things…
That I know you like…
And I love seeing your face
When you ride your bike…
I sing to you
When you go to sleep…
And if I don’t have you
Then I’m incomplete…
Without you
My world isn’t sunny…
And without you
Things jus isn’t funny…
I wonna feel your hugs
Each and every day…
Wake up in the morning
And see your pretty face…
Open your door
And watch you while you play…
Sit right next to you
And hear what you gotta say…
I will always be here for you, and there for you
And teach you everything…
I jus want you to know
I will do anything for you
And with all of my heart
I’ll always love you…

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
