Daddy's Little Girl


Wishes
On a shooting star
One girl wishes
Her dad would come back from afar
Her daddy's off in war
Off in Iraq
Every day she hopes
Her dad would come back
'Why does there have to be war! ? '
She cries
Her mommy shakes her head
Shrugs and sighs
No one will answer her
No one hears her plea
No one comes to her aid
No one can see
How this little girl is hurting
Everywhere
It shouldn't be her problem
To bear
And so each night
She crawls out of bed
To see when her daddy
Will give her a goodnight kiss on her head

    When I saw the title of this I just had to read it.
    I never had a little girl, but I always wanted one.
    To read about the hurt of her daddy being gone
    was a hardthing to read. But I guess that's the price of love
    between a father and his daughter.

    You know what I hear in this poem: whining!
    You miss your dad? ? ? So do the ones who don't have them and they have a better reason then there dad going off to war! There isn't a draft, he volunteered! ! Be proud that he wanted to make a difference, no matter if we should still be there or not...he wanted to do this, especially to keep his family safe. You should be thanking him, wishing instead that he is well and safe! (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
