I want you to walk me down the aisle as a bride.
Be there for my high school graduation.
See your grandchildren. I need you back Daddy.
I'll learn to live without your strong character, but I'll never forget it.
You'll live on Dad. I have a piece of you in me.
And while I'm still on this earth you are too.
