The baby

Years ago, I wrote a poem about my daddy. I kinda was happy with it, and I wanted to read it at his funeral. Well, I didn't keep track of it, and Nancy just found it not to long ago..........

I just wanted to share it with you guys......it''s not to fancy....but it made me feel good

I miss him a lot.......

Sometimes I like to sit and think
And remember quietly
About my life in yesterday
And the child I used to be

I can hear the people saying
“Did, you hear what Margie had?”
“Yep, she had another girl”
“Oh really? That’s to bad”

It never really dawned on me
That you wished I was a boy
I’ve just always been your baby,
Saying that brings me great joy

It was also just the other day
When we were on the farm
Living in a nice big house
Save from outside harm

The summer nights, The Christmas days
No person ever could,
Ever in this lifetime
Have a better childhood

I remember all those horses
And Learning how to ride
I remember the night my horse was killed
When you told me, you cried

You were always there when needed
Helping me along
You were always there to catch me
When I’d do something wrong

You taught me how to be polite
And show respect to others
You thought us all about relationships
In how you loved my mother

Now that I’m a parent
And have children of my own
I’m forever grateful for your love
Through out the years you’ve shown

I’ve grown sentimental in these last few years
It sounds so trite, but true
I’m just so glad that I’m your baby
And that God sent me, to you
