Daddy's Little Girl

You rubbed my mommy’s tummy when you found out I was in there.
You loved me so much.
You said when I was born I was so beautiful that you couldn’t help but stare.
My hands and feet were so very little.
You held me close and called me your baby girl.
That was twenty years ago and the fact still remains.
Your my daddy.
And I’m your baby girl.
Over the years we have grown closer together.
My respect for you go so much further.
Your the one person I can tell everything to.
You taught me so much growing up.
You were the person that taught me how to fish.
I can’t imagine how you felt the first time I called you dad.
When I melted your heart and caused you pain.
I wasn’t thinking about the strain.
I know in the past I have caused you heart ache and grief.
I stole your feelings like a thief.
I hope to one day understand what its like to have a little one.
I hope and pray that he is just like my dad.
Young at heart.
Wise inside.
And to see the world with open eys.

Artist's Description

This is a poem I wrote for my dad. I recently learned that by many he isn’t expected to live…… It hurts he has always been there for me and I regret hurting him the many times and ways I have…. I feel that more children and teenagers need to listen to their parents they aren’t going to be around forever.. Cherish each and every second you have with loved ones…………. Enjoy I hope you all like this poem. Don’t be scared to comment my work I love reading feedback and don’’t hesitate to give me advice on what you think I could do to make my writing better…..Have a great day!!
