My Dearest Daddy,
As I look back over my life and think of so many
things that have happened,
I always remember you standing by my side.
You’ve taught me honesty and Integrity,
You’ve shown me love and patience,
And even tried to teach me patience (as you know
not my strong point).
Today is a special day for me not just because it’s
a new beginning for me,
But because once again you’re standing at my side.
I know that we don’t see each other or even talk
as much as we’d like,
But the lessons you’ve taught me are deep within
And in some way you’re always with me
Because you helped make me who I am today.
I love you daddy!!!
No matter what, I’ll always be your little girl,
And you’ll always be my daddy.
