My Daddy Dear – For Ann Burt

My daddy dear – though time is near I wanted you to hear these words from me. I love you so – and I hope you know I’m glad you and mom were meant to be. When I joined – your lives back then I felt secure, with nourished love. You would called me – “little princess” Mom knew, “our gift from God above.” And even though – I’ve felt so special And am happy and filled with joy. I’m really ok – that you once thought You’d much rather have a boy!!! Now all of a sudden – in just a blink Our time has passed so fast This daughter – you once held in your arms Has truly grown up, at last. And today – I feel it’s “my time” To show you all the love I can I’m just so glad – that we can laugh At jokes no one else can understand. I believe that – I am truly blessed So privileged to be your child. In my heart – you can’t be replaced Not now, nor in awhile. So feel content – knowing that Your “princess” is here for you. Be at peace, daddy – just in knowing Our dear Lord is with you, too! M. Clary January 14, 2003
