A POEM TITLED DADDY

I could has chosen a poem by
a well known poet, but instead
I chose to post a poem written
by my daughter, Deann, for her
dad one father's day.

Daddy

It seems like only yesterday that
I was your "little girl," and you
were my Daddy--more precious
than a pearl.

As time passed, and the years flew
by, they changed us gradually. You
came to be simply Dad, and I was
your "young lady."

Now that I am all grown up with a
family of my own, I've come to
realize one thing that you've probably
always known.

No matter what my age is-- whether
three or ninety-three--You're really
still my Daddy, and you forever more
will be.

What a beautiful and touching poem. It made my eyes get a little teared up. What talent your daughter has for writing poetry. She should continue to write more poems.
