Hi. I like to write, I expect you like to read. What say we strike up an acquaintance?

Dearest Daddy,

Never really got the chance to show you your worth

Somehow I always knew you were God’s gift to earth

Never really got the chance to show you how much I cared

But I hope you heard these unspoken words

There were the times when I thought you just a bore

But I never stopped believing you were exceptional, and much more


However fleeting the time may have been

Thank you Daddy, for giving me my Daddy.

This is very moving, you've just moved him up above. :)

Amazing piece. I can totally relate to the sentiments since this year marks 10 years since my own father passed away. One of my biggest regrets is that I never got to tell him just how much he was my hero. He still is and always will be. I'm sure your father is smiling down at you because I know mine is at me!
