To My Father, In Honor of Father's Day

There are many poems about the relationship between a father and his daughter.  Some of them were written by famous poets and others were written by aspiring ones. The poem, here, was written by Thomas S. Carver, a man whose profile you can find in Facebook.  This poem could have been written for my father and me, even though we had never met the poet.

Be sure to have some tissues handy.

"IN YOUR HEART

He was so proud of his little girl
It was her very first day of school
He walked with her to school that day
And she held his hand all the way
They walked together quiet and sad
A little girl and her loving dad
Into the school her father led
But he almost cried when she said
Daddy, Daddy please don't go
Don't leave me here all alone
I'll miss you if you go away
And I might need you, can't you stay
Little Daughter please don't cry
You'll be okay so dry your eyes
You have our memories in your heart
We're together though we're apart

He sat up front on her wedding day
And cried as his daughter walked away
Later that night he watched her dance
He sat there waiting for his chance
The band started to play their song
Father and daughter danced along
She looked at him and saw a tear
Then leaned and whispered in his ear
Daddy, Daddy I have to go
I hate to leave you all alone
I'll miss you when I go away
But if you need me then I'll stay
Little Daughter I'll be just fine
I'll love you always you are mine
I have our memories in my heart
We're together though we're apart

She came in his room and kissed his head
Then sat next to his hospital bed
He took her hand and held it tight
And wished he had the strength to fight
They sat together quiet and sad
A daughter and her dying dad
He saw the tears she tried to hide
She looked at him and then she cried
Daddy, Daddy please don't go
Don't leave me here all alone
I'll miss you when you go away
I still need you, you have to stay
Little Daughter I love you so
I want to stay but have to go
I'll always be here in your heart
We're together though we're apart"

To my dear, sweet Dad -- You're never far from my thoughts.  You taught me that strength often masquerades as gentleness and you gave me the very special gifts of confidence and optimism.

Happy Father's Day to all!

According to my theory every day should be father’s day. I mean you don’t really need a specific day to show respect to your father and to show him your love for him. It doesn’t mean that you will give importance to your father on just one day.
