Daddy's Girl
by LeAnn  Puglisi

All that I am is because of you;
Your silent strength, and long suffering endurance.
Though never spoken aloud, I knew your love.
It enveloped me where ere I was,
A shooting star across my life, 
Brilliant, yet not nearly long enough.

Your smile, your laugh, your humor 
are still mine to share,
Though these may fade with the passage of time.
My memory of you is still fresh, quiet and alive.
You walk through my mind each day with an old corny joke 
and a wink and hold my small hand as I gaze at you in awe.

Daddy's girl I'll always be...
We still play ball and cards eat ice cream and peaches  
Do homework and watch football and make Mom mad, just for fun.
The wind now carries your voice, the sun your smile;
The birds your spirit and the clouds your wisdom-
But I carry your love.
