Daddy - Poem by Anna Dietze

A little girl needs daddy
For many, many things:
Like holding her high off the ground
Where the sunlight sings

Like being the deep music
That tells her all is right
When she awakens frantic
With the terrors of the night

Like being the great mountain
That rises in her heart
And shows her how she might get home
When all else falls apart

Like giving her the love
That is her sea and air
So diving deep or soaring high
She’ll always find him there
