Here is to Daddy

Spoke to mum on my birthday and she says baby girl, you are all grown up now,
Daddy would be so proud of the fine young woman you have become.
So that day I thought of all the days I wished that you hadnt gone away.
The day I finished my finals, my graduation, when I got my first job,
I miss you every day but more so on all my first days of everything.

I however thought to myself that I would remember you different that day.
I would remember why you meant the world to me
The reason why after so many years, am still not over you

I thought of how we talked about eveything
How we couldnt understand why mum was always late even though she got up the earliest
How you just let me be when I went into my moods
The way you laughed at funny things I said
The way you celebrated my achievements and picked me up when I didnt do so well
How you couldnt wait to have me back home when I went away
The way you gave me wings to fly and achieve my dreams
How you believed in me mostly when I wasnt so sure of myself
The way you set me straight when I was wrong
Your wisdom and outlook on life when I needed guidance
For letting me find and stand my own feet

I guess I could go on forever but the most important thing that you did is introducing me to the greatest friend there is to know.
So when I miss you so much it hurts to breath, I talk to this friend of ours and let Him know how much it hurts cos He understands.

I pray each day that somehow you are able to see me and share in my days though I cant see you.
If you were here this is what I would like to say " though I am all grown up now, I will always be your little girl".
