Treasure Island

Dwayne Bailey

(03-08-1965 / San Pedro California)

Daughter


March its seems for now,
is how long we are going to wait;
Before we get to know,
what is the health, and my daughters fate.
Its tough to take my life,
and everything thats going on in stride;
My feelings and emotions,
I must be strong and keep inside.
My eight year old looks to me,
with eyes of a trusting soul;
Daddy will make everything ok.
Daddy will keep me whole.
I love my eight year old daughter,
much more then words can say;
Since most of this is out of my hands,
daily I kneel and pray.
Lord you love my daughter,
and I know your plan is true;
Today I give you my daughter,
and all that she is going through.

    I am so sorry to read about your daughter, Dwayne. I will keep
    her and all of your family in my prayers. There is no loss greater
    than to lose a child. Miracles do happen and I do believe in angels.
    They are hovering around her now.

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
