Father Child Poem

There always comes a time in a father's life when he has to watch his children growing up without him to show them the way. A father's role as a parent is to teach his children and give them the strength they will need to grow into an adult. Most fathers don't even know they are doing a good job. I have been blessed with a great father, and I wrote this for him after graduation.

Daddy's Little Girl

©

Published: June 1, 2018

In your eyes, I see grace,
Full of love and encased
With a hope that burns bright in the dark.
Through your love, I know God.
You don't know, but I'm in awe
Of the steps that I try to keep pace.

You may feel me slipping away,
Hanging on by a thread,
But that's okay,
Because you know that I'll always be that little girl
With the stars in her eyes and a bow in her curls.
And even as I grow up,
Know that you'll always be stuck
In a place in my heart that's just yours.

Daddy, you're the strongest I know.
Not just with your hands but also your soul.
I don't think you've noticed, never had to look back,
But I've seen past the things that I thought I had lacked.

I've come to my crossroad; I've chosen my trail.
It's going to be hard. I may even fail,
But your courage and strength will keep me on track.
And If I've learned anything, it would be that
Hardships and hurt will come when they may,
And if you let them drag you down
They won't go away.

Daddy, you taught me how to be strong.
My journey is a hard one; it's going to be long.
I have all I need to face my fears,
And the lessons have been learned; it's taken me years.

Now I am confident in the strides that I take.
My faith has grown strong, and it will never break.
From this moment on, I'm chasing the world,
Always proud to be my daddy's little girl.
