My Old Man - Poem by Yami Tenshi

To my old man (who's really only in his late-thirties) . I love him so dearly. No one can understand how weird I am and be the same exact way.

I absolutely love my father,
I'm so proud to be his daughter.
The bond we share is like no other,
We find solace in each other.

He says when I'm depressed or blue,
'Remember that Daddy loves you.'
And around him I'm like a child,
And he makes childhood worth the while.

He makes me laugh when I want to cry,
And he's the one who gets me by.
No boyfriend, man, or other male,
Can top my dad (he tips the scale) .

He says when I'm depressed or blue,
'Remember that Daddy loves you.'
And I use that when I feel somber,
Or when I wonder why I bother.

I love no one like I love my father,
I'm just so proud that I'm his daughter.

    I'm not ashamed to say that this is my dream situation. To have a little girl
    that I could spoil for love just like this one has been for her father. The piece
    is sincerely written I'm sure. I highly recommend it because it is bound to add to the good feelings of the day.
