A Daughter's Cure

©

Published: February 2006

Sometimes life throws us curveballs
And nothing he does is fair
We know we have a lot of differences
But with a dad's love, who cares?

Sometimes it seems like he doesn't understand
And it is difficult to relate
But with a big bear hug and a look in his eyes
Some of my pain can go away

We don't always have similar view points
When we disagree, we might shout
Yet when the day is over
Our love can work it out

It's hard to reach common ground
When the road is really rough
I may feel like he's always against me
But in truth, he couldn't love me enough

Yes, life (and parents) throws us curveballs
But one thing is for sure
My dad is more than just a dad
He is a daughter's cure

Dedicated to Brent Tucker
He may not be my father, but he will ALWAYS be my dad
