"NEVER FAR BEHIND"
Daddy there's so many things I feel I left UN-said,
I always hoped I'd get the chance,I'm sorry I never did.
But I would like to tell you now, for all the world to see,
That you weren't just my Daddy, you were everything to me.
I never told you Daddy, when I was two and three,
How fun it was to sit, and bounce upon your knee.
Or the times that you would take, and swing me thru the air,
Oh what I wouldn't give, if I could go back there!
Daddy, did you know, that when you left for work each day,
I wanted to go with you, I tried to find a way.
Eventually I'd tire out, and climb up in your chair,
And peak thru that big window, I knew you'd soon be there.
Daddy's Home! I see him! He's coming up the walk!
I just cant wait to see him, I really need to talk.
I'll tackle him as he walks in, I know that he wont mind,
He'll know It's me cause where-ever he is, I'm never far behind.
Daddy did you know, I missed you so much today,
I'm hoping that tomorrow you'll stay home so we can play.
He smiled a great big smile, then held my little hands,
He'd say honey when you get older, I know you'll understand.
But Daddy didn't always work, he too got time to play,
And those were times that our whole family got to get away.
We didn't have a fancy truck, or a cabin we could rent,
We'd load up the old station-wagon, and then we'd pitch a tent!
I never told you Daddy, what these family times meant to me,
I just knew that when I was there, there was no place I'd rather be.
And in this great big old world,
I'm so proud to know that I am "Daddy's Little Girl."
So when the Lord came calling, for the time to take you home,
A part of me went with you, I couldn't bare for you to go alone.
And looking back now I can see, what I couldn't at the time,
I'm coming with you Daddy, you just can't leave me behind.
