Where have the years gone ..........

I wish I could have been there for you
when you most needed me


I wish for miracles to keep you safe
for your soul to be flying and free

I wish I could have convinced you
that I would move mountains for your smile

I wish to carry you on my shoulders
untill the last ending mile

I wish that smile was forever and you
know inside my mind it's so real

I would do anything ........anything
now how does that feel



I could not be prouder....nor happier in who
you have become .........The beauty that lies without
and within...........is unending.  Your heart of giving for others
.....your  gifts of personality ....you are so much better than
those who raised you........I love the woman you have
become  and I  am humbled every time you call me DAD........

Ah, love for a daughter. I think should wait for 1000 years more to hear my father say that to me. She is very lucky to have you as her Dad, Sir.

No matter my age nor the stages of life I have been through, that have passed, No matter that this sometimes cruel world sifts sand so fast through this lifes hour glass...The precious time we have shared both in person and from such great distance, you as a father have never let me down your love always with such persistence...The hardest times I've been through in life and at times I didn't know how, the answer includes you my guiding light in life yes this I know now...So many things in my past have been taken from me including some sweet memories, But this I want to ask of you dad, no this my true heart plees...Let me remain your little girl swinging so carefree in the warm summer sun, the whole while knowing in this life that I'm your little girl.. always your number one...

Just beautiful, ahorseback She's a lovely looking young lady and fortunate to be loved my her Dad. Mine was a wonderful Dad and just knowing he loved me dearly has been a major strength in my life. He had many responsibilities but always took time to hear me and show his interest. It is not a matter of quantity so much as of quality of one's Dad's caring.

Can you? I will be really grateful! LOL. Nah! He just doesn't know how to show his love. He is better right now though, unless for speaking part. I was believe that I have some kind of remote in my head which made him mute around me. LOL

That is the sweetest poem ever. Every little girl would love to have such love deeply and openly expressed like that! She is very proud of you too and for good reason!
