A Daughter's Cure

Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006 with permission of the author.

Sometimes life throws us curve balls,
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 viewpoints.
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 curve balls,
But one thing is for sure.
My dad is more than just a dad.
He is a daughter's cure.
