Thank You, Daddy


This poem is my tribute to my Dad....he passed away February 27th. I wrote this in memory of all the things he taught me and all the love he shared with our family...as well as with all those that knew him.  I miss him so much...but I take solace in the fact that he's now at peace.

Thank you Daddy....
For being gentle, yet strong.
For showing me how to do things right,
Yet giving me the freedom to do them wrong, and never saying, "I told you so".

Thank you Daddy...
For taking my hand as a young chilld,
Guiding me through life's hazards,
And never letting go...even after I'd grown.

Thank you Daddy...
For teaching me to never give up...
To reach for my dreams...
And to laugh at my mistakes.

Thank you Daddy...
For showing me what true love is...
How a husband should care for his wife...
With respect and unconditional love, as you did mom.

But most of all...
Thank you Daddy...for being my best friend,
A  memory I'll treasure and carry in my heart the rest of my life.
Thank you Daddy.
