Daddy's Little Girl

he always had that special smile
the one that was just for me
and all the hugs that he could give
so easily to me.

he had that soft kiss goodnight
that said "I love you" without any words
the excitement when I spent the night
the hug that lifted me off the ground

sitting quietly while he scratched his tickets
waiting for the time when he would talk,
he would tell me of his day,
and I would be so interested
even though I knew he didn't have the time

as I grew older
our time together changed
sometimes it was just the two of us
having conversations and comfortable silences
sitting in his room watching tv

we talked of nothing,
we talked of everything
it didn't really matter
as long as we were together

my daddy was a special man
maybe not to everyone;
but to me he was everything,
good and kind and wonderful
I miss him so very much;
I miss those quiet evenings on the bank of the old creek
I miss his quiet kiss goodnight
and the smell of his baby soft hair
I miss being his little girl...

I love you daddy
wherever you are...
