I never got to say goodbye,
You left so very sudden.
I was not there to hold your hand,ease your fears,
Or say how much I loved you.
For I was far away when you decided on your journey.
A journey of a different sort, a journey someplace new.
Your journey to meet again those that you loved and missed.
Daddy, I miss you!
Your blue eyes, your strong hands your generous heart.
Your laugh are now but warm memories for me.
I can only remember the happiness and the sadness.
How you taught me to swim, handle my boat, drive a car.
How you taught me to be strong and love with all one's heart.
You are my dad: that special man in a girl's life.
I was not the perfect daughter, but you loved me just the same.
So Daddy I say to you, "until we meet again," I love you Daddy!
