  • I Love You Daddy

    You were born today
    A gift from God
    The blessing we waited for
    Your small fingers, your tiny toes

    You turned one today
    You say my name, Daddy
    I feel my heart melt
    The cute smile on your face
    You teeter totter when you walk

    You turned two today
    We "talk" about your favorite show
    You cry when I had to leave for work
    I promised to be home soon
    A little kiss on my cheek, "I love you, Daddy."

    You turned three today
    You are so precious to me
    We went out to celebrate
    We were hit on the highway
    The officer said something about his state
    The man had been drinking, a little too much
    I hold you lifeless body
    A peck on your cheek, remembering, "I love you, Daddy."

    You would have been four today
    A tear trickles down my cheek
    I remember your little voice
    "Daddy, Let's play."
    I kneel down, placing four roses on your grave
    It hurts to remember your hugs and kisses
    And the memory, "I love you, Daddy."

    You would have been five today
    I try not to think about it
    But the emptiness won't stop
    I wonder what you would have said today
    Probably the sweetness of "I love you, Daddy."

    The years pass by
    But you are still on my mind
    Still in my heart
    I miss you so very much

    You would have been ten today
    I can imagine you on your new bike
    I try to hear you laugh at my jokes
    All I can think of is you
    I wish I could hear "I love you, Daddy."

    The years pass by
    But you are still on my mind
    Still in my heart
    I miss you so very much

    You would have been thirteen today
    I see you in my mind, beautiful
    Slumber parties, field trips, and friends
    All the things that could have been
    And, in my mind I hear "I love you, Daddy."

    The years pass by
    But you are still on my mind
    Still in my heart
    I miss you so very much

    You would have been sixteen today
    Sweet sixteen, dresses and curls, boyfriends
    A dance together that will never happen
    I pretend to see you twirl around
    All you say is "I love you, Daddy."

    The years pass by
    But you are still on my mind
    Still in my heart
    I miss you so very much

    You would have been eighteen today
    Moving out, on your own
    Living life to the fullest
    A brand new life awaiting your charm
    And as you leave, you say
    "I love you, Daddy."

    The years pass by
    But you are still on my mind
    Still in my heart
    I miss you so very much

    You would have been twenty-one today
    You run to me and say, "I'm engaged."
    Excited, I hug you and kiss your cheek
    It would have been my turn to walk you down the aisle
    As I give you away, you stop and say,
    "I love you, Daddy."

    I wish all these things could have been
    If only you were still here
    My life would mean so much more
    Only if I could really hear you say,
    "I love you, Daddy."

I Love You Daddy
