I love you Daddy

They ask me “what can you not live without?”

First thought in my head

It’s not a what, it’s a who

The thought of living without you sends chills down my spine

I feel an instant wave of sorrow overcome my body

With just the thought

Of living without you


We smile, we laugh, we can talk for hours

You’ve been with me since birth

You’re the reason I am who I am today

Everyone says we act just a like

I just smile and reply “Well I am my father’s child”


There are times when we fight

And we are both as stubborn as mules

I may yell and you may scream

But at the end of the day I know you will be there

Right beside me, like always

I’m daddy’s little girl


I’m away in college now

People thought things would change

I miss you a lot even though we talk everyday

I come home for break and you’re right there waiting

Everything is going to be okay

My daddy is here again         


The support you have shown me over the years

I can’t imagine my life without it.

I don’t want to.

I cannot live without you daddy.

Please don’t ever leave me
