Daddy, I Miss you!

Daddy, I miss you!
I always knew the hardest day.
I would face on earth would be the day that I lost you.
You were the man that I could always look up to.
I loved sitting on your lap when I was little.
Your love never made me feel brittle.
I felt like with you, I could conquer all things.
I was your little princess and you were the son of the King of Kings.
Together, you and I were a mighty power.
You were a tall tower.
I loved to hear you sing.
You always were in perfect string.
Singing “How Great Thou Art”
Your voice trailed through the church.
Standing on a proud perch,
I can’t think of a thing you couldn’t do.
You always knew.
When I was sad,
It would make you so mad.
You wanted to protect me from the world.
You would take my small hand and spin me in a dizzy twirl.
I was so happy filled with laughter to be your baby girl.
You called me your perfect white pearl.
When we were together, I had my perfect world.
Now, you’re gone,
And sometimes, I feel all alone.
Then I remember back to those summer days.
When you would take my hand and spin me on the feathery green grass in a twirl.
And, I go back to the days of evening prayers.
And feeling the love of a parent that really cares,
All the special times we shared.
When I was sitting on your lap in your chair,
I would put my little hand against your heart, and feel your heartbeat.
Feeling the sweet tingle in my feet,
I thought you would live forever.
I could never.
Picture a day without you.
Daddy, I miss you!
Why did you have to go away?
I wanted more time to say.
How much I loved you, and how blessed, I was to have a father like you!
If only you knew.
How much I miss you!
I pray at night that you can see me in the faces of Angels.
And, see how much I miss you.
Daddy, I miss you!
I’ll love you through eternity.
