DADDY

Daddy, let's go for a walk
Daddy, kiss me good night
Daddy, read me a bedtime story
Daddy, sing me a lullaby
Daddy, I'm going to school now
Daddy, I fell down
Daddy, help me up
Daddy, did you know how much I love you?
Daddy, please don't die
Daddy, don't leave me ...
Daddy ...
... Good-bye ...

My daddy died in 1974, I miss him so!

  1. You were loved when he was with you and still are. You must have learned some of your good qualities from him even if it was not for as long as you would want. It is so sweet to read your words of love for your father.

  4. Dear Margie,
    This post brought tears to my eyes.
    All that you said, sounded just like my Daddy. He said goodbye to me. He died in 1989. I still think of him every day.

  10. Ah, this was beautiful and very sad at the same time...
    There is something special in the relationship between a father and a daughter.
    This made me miss my father very much too, he and my mom are still alive, but I only get to see them once a year at the best...
    Have a lovely Saturday my dearest friend,

  11. How incredibly lucky you are to have had the kind of father you can still think of as "daddy". Hold that gift close - it is a treasure not everyone gets.

  12. They say we never really know what we have until we lose him/her.
    You're lucky to have a gift for writing such lovely poems. Your Dad is sure pleased up there to learn about this rhyming tribute to him as a father.
