Dear Daddy
Author: Terrie*


dear daddy
i miss you

i stand by the front door
and i whisper to God
to allow ya
to bring a good cigar

for fathers day
by the time you arrive
you'll find me sittin'
out back
probably sauced and teary eyed
as i reminicse of the happy past

while my son B B Q's
the neighbors ,find me tokin'
on an expensive cigar
remindin' me of the last
special moment you and i shared

ashamed , embarrased who me?
heck no sirree
daddy i pretend to be all grown up
remember thats what gets me by
by pretendin'

just as i sit here with my eyes closed
pretendin' that you
and your son-in-law are sitttin
close by
enjoin' a tall malt with me

every fathers day
i think about you
every fathers day
i end up missin' you more
than the days that have gone by

this fathers day
since i have to be a t work
i'm gonna be pretendin'
that i'm at the beach
so i cain feel you closer to my reach

Daddy i miss you!
Daddy i love you!


------- Author's Notes -------

many thought that when i wanted to get my way or wanted something from my dad i always called him daddy
the truth is i have always called him daddy
