MEMORY OF MY DEAR DADDY

MEMORY OF MY DEAR DADDY

I remember my Dear Daddy tucking me in,
and kissing me Good-night.
Telling me softly,
“Daddy’s little girl will have sweet dreams
when you shut your tired little eyes tonight.”

I’d wake up in the morning,
sit at the kitchen table,
while riding on your lap.
I “lived to be with my dear Daddy”
until it was time for me to take a nap.

I remember that evening you drove the car,
to take me and mommy home.
I was oh so frightened
from the wicked storm on that dreadful night.

But I can see your warm smile,
hear your kind voice, As you say,
“Hush my little daughter, don’t be afraid.”
“God is watching over us. We’ll be alright!”

I remember the day
God took you away,
and I was only the age of four.
Friends and family members were mourning,
as I opened up the door.

You called out…….. to my Dear Uncle “AL”
Daddy, that day you saved the life
of your best pal.
You died while you were oh so young.
My Mother’s “new life” had just begun.

Left with two small children
to raise all alone,
She wondered,
What dreadful thing could
She have done?

I never realized you weren’t coming back
as the people filled our living room.
I remember telling everyone,
“Please don’t cry.”
“ Daddy will be home real soon.”

They put you in your casket,
said a prayer, then laid you down to rest.
As they lowered your body
down into the ground,
I knew, “You were with God’s chosen BEST!”

“I LOVE YOU“,
so very much My Dear Daddy,
though, from this earth you are gone.
My memories of you My Dear Daddy,
will always live on and on.

I know that you watch over me,
from eternal life in heaven up above,
Now, as I visit you at your gravesite,
I’ll always have the “Memory”
of your Sincere UNDYING LOVE!
