Daughter's Desire Of Love - Poem by Ashley Jackson

Dear Daddy,
All I am wanting is your tender love and care
I'm not talking about chocolates, balloons, and a teddy bear
But I am talking about love that contains phone calls, a hug, and a kiss
'Is that too hard for him to do? ' ma often hear me hiss
Lord knows she doesn't know
Surely I know one day you will regret for not being in my life
Just this one regret will cut you up just like a knife
Without you sometimes life is pure hell
So I am gon' live my life so I can tell
Of how I lived my life and overcame
Sooner of later I'll know who to blame
For making my life the best that it happened to be
I am so happy can't you see
