father daughter, pain, child, me,
by Deb Wilson |
There is a child that looks like me.
Years from now still won't be free.
You'll want to rock her in your arms.
Keep her safe from all that harms.
Some things you simply don't forget.
And there is shame that haunts me yet.
The stark reality is this-
I find it hard to share a kiss.
Children are meant for love and prayers.
Not sneaking footsteps on the stairs.
Fear grows where refuge should be.
Hate floats on a toxic sea.
In all these years sorrow still lives.
A broken spirit but strong will gives
reason to find a better way.
This child is loved by me today.

death, emotions, farewell, father daughter, moving on, sympathy,
As I lye awake and think of you
my heart always feels so blue.
I try my best to move on, but it's hard to do
since you've been gone.
Thou my heart feels like it's bleeding, I can't
stop how I'm feeling.
People say time will heal the pain but, at times
I feel I'm going insane.
I pray to god everyday, he makes my
pain go away.
I will always love you with all my heart, and know
that one day the healing will start.
But, until that day comes around I will never forget
when we laid you in the ground.
So, please God help me understand why daddy let go of my hand.

child, father daughter, children, my child,
What would we do without Cuddles
They help us to get out of muddles
When we're feelin' down, they replace a frown
And they fill us so full of Love Bubbles
Beethoven, Sparkles and Lulu
Far greater than anything Tragic
Eeyore, T-T-Tigger and Pooh
In Dreams that are filled full of Magic
Angels are made for believin'
Even if we've never seen them
They mind us at night, when we shut our eyes tight
And they help the Dream Fairies to Weave them

you runway the other day
your love here to stay
you are still my world
by Daniel Turner |
father daughter, i love you,
Bright stars shine in night skies
Like bangles, baubles and beads
Puts a twinkle in every girl's eyes
Like a gift of fine jewelry
A pair of sun stone earrings
Presented to the daughter I love
Some expensive fatherly bling
The price for her, one hug
Red copper reflecting inclusions
Dark middles fade to light edges
An adventurine feldspar illusion
Perfect for eternal love pledges
Turquoise blue or teal green schiller
Either one is an eye to heart thriller

dad, daughter, father daughter, fathers day,
Daddy, I love you
For all that you do
I'll kiss you and hug you
Cause you love me, too
You feed me and need me
To teach you to play
So smile cause I love you
On this Father's Day

abuse, dark, father daughter, how i feel, hurt, leaving, strength,
You wanted someone strong; you wanted someone who wouldn’t crack. You thought you were making me tough by breaking me down. You told yourself it was the only way, because I wasn’t the boy you wanted.
I was a girl, your first born. I was delicate, young, and very impressionable. I grew numb to the pain I became accustom to.
You succeeded. You made me into someone the world couldn’t shatter, because you can’t break something that’s already in pieces.
by Joseph Bradshaw |
baby, beautiful, child, daughter, father daughter, heart, love,
I light up every time I see your face.
You're a very special part of me no one can ever replace.
The first time I held you to my chest, so close to my heart.
I knew there'd be a bond that would never fall apart.
I love you so much more than every cloud in the sky.
Always on my mind forever in my heart, my Shy.
by Lori Freund |
death, father daughter,
If you were here,
This is what I would do.
Hold you very near,knowing you would like to.
If you were here
This is what I would say,
I would whisper in your ear.
I love you every day
If you were here
This is how I would feel
My eyes will fill of tears
I know is can not bev real.
by Eckho Scott |
dad, daughter, family, father, father daughter,
this I dedicate to you Daddy
Billy Joe Scott
The eyes I've seen
My entire life
Are smiling back at me
The laugh I've dreamt
As I knew it would be
The words of wisdom
My ears have needed
I'm tireless just listening
And the love that's there
In that heart of his
Was mine all along
The kiss at night
Upon my cheek
Is forever emblazoned there
And the blood in his veins
Same as mine
Gives a history of me

last thoughts that i will have
shall ever be of you
anticipating what will come
when all of this is through
last words that leave these lips
shall be your lovely name
i’ll cry it out with passion for
as long as breath remains
last words that i shall hear
will come from our own child
it’s alright dad, just go to her
i’ll see you in awhile
last breath that i shall take
will follow with a kiss
the one from you, the other from
the daughter whom i’ll miss
last days you spent with me
i’ll treasure for all time
just know that i’m at rest, li’l girl
your mom and i are fine
by Roger Horsch |
baby, birth, childhood, father daughter, for her, love,
I promised I’d always love you
From the day of your own birth.
I promise I will love you more
Than anything on Earth.
I promise I will be there
On the day you learn to talk.
I promise I will hold your hands
When you begin to walk.
I promise I will wipe your tears
At the times when you are sad.
I promise I will love you still
Even if I’m mad.
I promise I will do my best
Each and every day.
The joy you give to me is strong
But, there’s one more thing to say.
You are the apple of my eye
You are my little pearl.
I’ll always hold you in my heart
‘cause you’re Daddy’s little girl.

We have been together
treasured joy now for many years
we trust each other with our
emotions, with affection, tears,
Any day when you are sick or hurting
I feel your pain - significant other,
when eighter-one needs attention
we help one another...
These mutual friendly feelings
for assistance, approval, support
form our tight bonds,
usually never broken
Sharing visions, time together
we respect each other,
regardless of shortcomings
I know you, "I love you anyway"

The Family That God Gave to Me
I think about the family,
that God gave to me...
And think about where
they'll spend eternity!
I think about the good times,
that we've had.
And the trials we've faced...
Both good and bad!
God helped us to overcome
And proved his faithfulness...
Today and forever!
He showed us the Godly path,
that we should follow...
And promised to be with us!
Today and tomorrow!
He's proven how
much he loves us!
And how much that he
cares for us!
Thank you my lord,
for all you do!
Where would we be?
If not for you?
You've proven yourself
over and over again!
Thank you so much,
for being our friend!

They see strengths
Not the limitations
These are people who will make you proud of yourself
They will tell you why you’re special
Trust you to the point you have to answer their expectations
They make you better than you normally are
You can be proud of yourself
They respect you
For what you’ve done
Where you’ve come from
They see what you’ve experienced something real
Respect you for your courage
They live by their rules
They do not expect you to follow theirs
They are at peace to themselves
They are not proving anything to you
They are good listeners
Sincere in their interest in you
You feel important
They are available for honest
Makes you want to share yourself

childhood, daughter, father daughter, graduation,
Oh my today is the day
Our little D graduates today
You are not only oh so smart
You are the one with the biggest heart
As you walk across that big stage
You are about to turn a very big page
13 years just flashes right by
As it's time for this chapter to say goodbye
Even though you are about to go
There is one thing for sure that you need to know
The love a Dad has for his daughter is beyond the stars
I am so blessed God choose you to be who you are
Just remember this is not the end
It is where your life journey is about to begin
I could not be any prouder of you
As you head off to college at LMU
by David De la Croes |
When you were born
I became a father
and in my heart I discovered
a new type of love
which made me both tender and strong
and through the years
it has motivated and inspired me
to care as much as I could.
And though my family and world
has expanded, I just want to say this:
There is nothing in this world that can replace
the joy I felt when you first looked at my face.
by Maurice Yvonne |
father daughter, love,
FROM HEART TO PAPER UNEDITED
For every tear you shed from hurt
physical or emotional
For every tear you shed from shame
rightly or wrongly
my heart sheds a beat
I never knew love
Until I knew you
I love you both
from my tippy toes
to the peak
of my silver threads
Don't hurt my dears
But when you do
I will hold you tight
Encase your fears
Minimize the pain
And when my heart bleeds
or slightly feels a crack
It's because my daughters
your lives before mine.
I love you so much girls...

father, father daughter, father son, life, love, relationship,
Their well being covers every corner of his conscience
caring for them is his default so beyond science
even when he seems wicked
he’d not mind to go naked
for love in their life to have a high rate of prevalence.

June 18, 2013 our world was Forever Changed
We where a few minutes from home
When we got the call from our baby sister
Said we need to get back home
We need to come as fast as we can drive
Mom really needs us
Something’s wrong with Daddy
The whole way we drove 80
Hoping & Praying we’d make it back in time
Our Family & Friends were weeping
By the time we got to his side
We knew then our Daddy had been taking
And our hearts they were breaking
We never got to say Goodbye
We each softly kissed that man
We four sisters laid down beside him
And cried just like babies
For our world was Forever Changed that day

I live where angels fear to walk
Don’t ask questions, no one’s gonna talk
Another kid’s innocence is being take
Their thirst for blood will never slacken
Love is something only found in a fairytale
But those don’t comfort, when home is spelled H E L L
Left alone for days on end
Nothing else to do but play pretend
Trying to get lost in a dream
But when that doesn’t help, all you can do is scream
I’ve called the devil by his first name
His eyes are cold, mine are the same
I live where angels fear to tread
By the time you find me, I’ll probably be dead
by Sukmawati Komala |
father daughter, feelings,
there are questions
which i never plead
for a reply
all those memories
in my thoughts
touched me softly
with its beauty
and ruined me deeply
in its density
i deluded myself
lit up in every moment
though it might be rediculous
but i feel your love
that never fade
every piece of hope
the fragment of wishes
to turn myself
into a peachy butterfly
fly up to heaven
perch on you
and see you
how i am waiting
for a chance
to tell you once more
how much you are loved
for a chance
~(c) Sukmawati Komala

I love my Dad although he's dead.
That matters not, he's in my head.
The things he said.
I seemed to grab his full attention.
From the moment of conception.
Perhaps because I almost died.
Along with mother, while still inside.
Could it be because of me
being such a little cutie?
We share so many common traits.
Music...wit..was it just fate?
I feel him with me, vibrations strong.
Encouraging, enabling, leading me on.
To be the best that I can be.
Not held back, set free.
I am so blessed to come from you.
Thank you Dad, I love you too.x

To Err Is Human
Would if I could, earn a spot
in the farthest part
of your bleeding heart
to bridge the gaping chasm
that for so long separated
and kept us apart.
What fate does the future holds
for a weary father growing weak and old;
while the whole story has yet to be told?
Through the prism of my aging tears,
rainbows color the present delight
radiating in the remaining waning years.
With a love that is pure and divine,
please forgive the painful err that was mine.
