Daddy’s Poem Her hair was up in a pony tail,
Today was Daddy’s Day at school, and she couldn’t wait to go.
that she probably should stay home.
she knew just what to say.
of why he wasn’t there today.
for her to face this day alone.
eager to tell them all.
for everyone to meet.
a student from the class.
as seconds slowly passed.
every child turned to stare.
she heard a boy call out.
another student dared to shout.
too busy to waste his day.”
as she smiled up at her Mum.
who told her to go on.
slowly she began to speak.
came words incredibly unique.
because he lives so far away.
since this is such a special day.
I wanted you to know.
and how much he loves me so.
he taught me to ride my bike.
and taught me to fly a kite.
and ice cream in a cone.
And though you cannot see him.
I’m not standing here alone.
he’ll forever be in my heart”.
and lay across her chest.
beneath her favorite dress.
her mother stood in tears.
who was wise beyond her years.
of a man not in her life.
doing what was right.
staring straight into the crowd.
but its message clear and loud.
he’s my shining star.
but heaven’s just too far.
and taught us all to fear.
it’s like he never went away.”
and saw him there that day.
she witnessed with surprise.
all starting to close their eyes.
who knows what they felt inside.
they saw him at her side.
to the silence she called out.
of those once filled with doubt.
for each of their eyes had been closed.
was a fragrant long-stemmed pink rose.
by the love of her shining star.
that heaven is never too far.
but then an entire life to forget them.
Take the time…to live and love!
Michael until eternity. God bless!
