He was so proud of his little girl It was her very first day of school He walked with her to school that day And she held his hand all the way They walked together quiet and sad A little girl and her loving dad Into the school her father led But he almost cried when she said Daddy, Daddy please don't go Don't leave me here all alone I'll miss you if you go away And I might need you, can't you stay Little Daughter please don't cry You'll be okay so dry your eyes You have our memories in your heart We're together though we're apart
He sat up front on her wedding day And cried as his daughter walked away Later that night he watched her dance He sat there waiting for his chance The band started to play their song Father and daughter danced along She looked at him and saw a tear Then leaned and whispered in his ear Daddy, Daddy I have to go I hate to leave you all alone I'll miss you when I go away But if you need me then I'll stay Little Daughter I'll be just fine I'll love you always you are mine I have our memories in my heart We're together though we're apart
She came in his room and kissed his head Then sat next to his hospital bed He took her hand and held it tight And wished he had the strength to fight They sat together quiet and sad A daughter and her dying dad He saw the tears she tried to hide She looked at him and then she cried Daddy, Daddy please don't go Don't leave me here all alone I'll miss you when you go away I still need you, you have to stay Little Daughter I love you so I want to stay but have to go I'll always be here in your heart We're together though we're apart
His words set me free
- by Michelle61
I've held it in Not sure why But I've not been able to cry
He left so quick I didn't have much time Suddenly, he wasn't mine
I wasn't ready To let him go So if I cried, it would be so
I still had things to do His wash, His games, His toys The messy room of a boy
But suddenly As I sat to wait For him to come home through the garden gate
It struck me that he was gone That he had died And I began to cry
And I saw the angles They were flying by With my child in the sky
Give him back I shouted out But they just flew about
I fell to the ground I challenged the Lord Then I begged and read His Word
How can I live When my life has just gone How can I go on?
And then I hated I blamed them all For my child shouldn't have heard the call
While I lay there In such pain I heard a voice who called my name
"I do not know sadness And I do not know hate Most of all, I do not question my fate
Stand up Mother And very tall I wasn't taken I heard the call!"
So I got up I turned around And there was no one to be found
And so it was time to cry Cause I heard his voice And it was also time to rejoice
"I wasn't taken I heard the call" He said to me And it set me free
