Daddy's Little Girl

Daddy’s little Girl that is what I’ll always be to you,
With me sitting upon your knee at the age of three or two.
With your glaring smile to ease my tears, you made me feel secure
Beyond all belief I was daddy’s girl I knew that for sure.

Do you remember the paddling pool, and the kites we flew in the sky
I got lost n sat on a path, waiting for my daddy to come by.
Then the sun formed and beyond my fear, there my daddy appeared once more.
With a bee sting on my belly button and my daddy at hand, he sucked the poison away and moved
The bee away with his bare hands.
Beyond all belief I was daddy’s girl I knew that for sure.

Daddy, you did silly things that always made me giggle
You did that play fighting with me and my brother,
That got us all in a fuddle, with a push here n a shove there
Me, n my brother we flew everywhere.
Beyond all belief I was daddy’s girl I knew that for sure.

But, daddy then I grew and matured, a young girl grown once more
With my first love to arise, daddy I knew you would find room to critisize
Little did I know, daddy’s are always right, the only man to be my saviour is
My daddy by far, yes I’m sure that is right.
Beyond all belief I was daddy’s girl I knew that for sure

So, here I am daddy before you now, as a young woman
With my life still to lead and cloud upon me
I know you will be above watching me,
With a ray of sunshine to reflect your smile
And the tears that portray the worlds loss
Beyond all belief I was, I am I will always be a daddy’s girl I know that for sure.

Dedicated: To Frank Barnes
A husband, father, brother and uncle and a dearest friend to all who had the privilege of being within his company.... a fellow man from the Territorial Army .... May your soul live on forever and I hope you are at peace.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
