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 I love you?
Daddy, please don't die 
Daddy, don't leave me ...
              Daddy ...
   ...  Good-bye ...

Daddy, you are so missed ...
Yesterday was the anniversary of my daddy's death ...

(I will not be posting again till the New Year ...
 I have been quite ill since coming home from a Thanksgiving trip to Las Vegas
 I had a bad stomach virus and now have a bad head cold and achy all over
 I hope to get by to visit all the wonderful people that visited me recently
 If I don't it's not because I don't want to, just not up to being online at this time
 Merry Christmas to all of you and God bless each and everyone ...) 


  1. Hi Margie! I am so happy to see a post, I was worried about you. Now I see that you have been sick, I'm so sorry. Take it easy and get plenty of rest. I'll love to see you in the new year.

    Please accept my condolences on the death of your Father. Losing a parent is so jarring. My Mom died on 12/13 or 2010, so I understand your sadness today. We know our parents are in a much better place, and are with us always. But sometimes, I still get sad too.

    I will be praying for your healing. Have a peaceful Christmas and healthy New Year!

  2. hope you feel better soon Margie. I wish you a happy Christmas and a wonderful new year 2014

  3. Sending wishes for a full and quick recovery. Prayers for your Dad in Heaven.
    Merry Christmas Margie
    Love Gil

  4. Moving poem, Margie. Fathers hope they can conduct some light into the world and you are evidence that yours succeeded. Get well soon.

  5. hugs. i am sorry that you have been under the weather take care of yourself...and hugs as well for the anniversary of the loss of your father...its hard to lose parents....lovely little verse...

  6. I hope that you will soon be well enough to enjoy the Christmas time. Take care. Prayers and blessings.

  7. Take good care of yourself my friend in whichever way that gives you comfort and peace of mind.

  8. I miss my dad, too - he died when I was 9. Your poem brought back memories.I once got food poisoning while visiting in CA - it weakened me considerably. Take care, Margie. I'm sending healing thoughts your way. Happy Holidays!

  9. Margie!!! I have missed you my friend! I am sure your father is surrounding you with love, always! I know it's hard, but smile and celebrate his memories ;o) Please get better and enjoy your holidays! Big Hugs and much love, xoxoxo

  10. My dear Margie, please take good care of yourself. Health is more important than anything else. I am sooooo happy that you began to post your wonderful poems again. I missed you and I missed them so much.

    While reading this poem I was thinking of my dad who isn't anymore in this world and how much I loved him and that I never told him "Daddy I love you." And I should do it.

    Beautiful and touching poem.

    I send to you my healing thoughts and all the best wishes.

    Warm hugs from me to you, my dear Margie.

  11. I'm so sorry angel, were you a child when he died? Gosh that must be the most awful thing....Take a lot of Rest and think of nothing but getting better ok, sending warm healing to you, and please rest, rest, rest, don't do a thing, stay in bed, have handsome bring you stuff, and get well I miss you xx00

  12. The pain of their loss never goes away, but the memories do help to keep it manageable. So lovely to see you, Margie! Wishing you and your family a blessed, beautiful and bright Christmas. I agree - Merry Christmas sounds so much sweeter and nicer than the obligatory "Happy Holidays". :)

  13. Your poem is so touching and heartfelt. Our parents always hold a special place in our hearts. And I believe they are our angels in heaven.
    I hope you feel better very soon. Have a blessed Christmas ♥

  14. So nice to see you back Margie. Wish you a speedy recovery. Hope you have a great holiday.

  16. Hello Margie. I'm sorry you're not feeling well.I hope you're snuggled up under a blanket near a warm fireplace or a warm body. :) Prayers for you as progress back to normal.

    I'm also sorry to hear of your father's passing last year. Your poem expresses the obvious daddy-daughter love you had; and still have.

    Take care. Your blogging companions will be here when you return.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

  17. I'm so sorry to hear you're ill.

    That's a lovely poem. Get plenty of rest - see you in the New Year.

  18. Oh Margie, I am in floods of tears. This has so touched my heart!

  29. Margie,

    Thank you for sharing that very special tribute written about your father. It will mean so much to others as well.
    Sorry to read that you have been unwell Margie. It is the season for so many illnesses and things which sap our energy. Take good care of yourself and return refreshed again, in the New Year.

    Je vous souhaite une très belle année 2014;

    Bien amicalement.


  39. Wishing you a very happy, healthy and successful year ahead, Margie, much love from Carole xx

  42. awwwwww this is my frst tym here n wat i read is that you are ill. Hope you get well super sooonnnn!!!!!!!!!!!!1 lovely poem btw :) Hope u had a good new years. Waiting to read more from you :)

  43. sometimes i think of my earthly fathers departure as the first day that i began to experience the Lord God as my true father. "hallowed be thy name" and Thy will be done" will be a life-long venture for me. The day I lost my dad, the heavenly father was there and used that hard moment in 1978 to draw me into His forever family.

  44. A warm and kindly thank you to everyone that visited and left a comment.
    So greatly appreciated.
    When I am feeling better I shall reply to all of you.

    Happy New Year and I wish many blessings to everyone
