I love my parents equally the same,
My Dad was the one who chose my name.
He didn’t know then he’d only have daughters,
Girls with parallel traits of their father.
I’m a daddy’s girl.
I tried harder to garner Dad’s attention,
It wasn’t enough for honourable mention.
Never did he favour one over the other,
I’m told I’m a lot more like my mother.
But I’m a daddy’s girl.
Working my magic with sarcastic dry wit,
I’d do my best to emulate him in skit.
Knowing my audience would never applaud,
I seek only his infamous, quiet head nod.
‘Cause I’m a daddy’s girl.
As I grew older and started to date,
The bar was set high when choosing a mate.
Characteristics like Dad’s were top on my list,
Okay, that’s sounds creepy but you get the gist.
I’m just a daddy’s girl.
When my sister and I had kids of our own,
He displayed more affection than he’s ever shown.
The best Grandpa one could ever ask for,
I’ve moved down to 4th for those keeping score.
I’m still a daddy’s girl.
Family life is full of highs and lows,
It’s not always easy but that’s how it goes.
I don’t have regrets when it comes to my Dad,
I’m grateful for all the time that we had.
I’m forever a daddy’s girl.
It’s been one year, plus a day,
Since my Father passed away.
I still find it hard to let go of,
The absence of his unconditional love.
I was a daddy’s girl.
So beautiful…so heartfelt and beautiful! Amazing tribute ❤️
That was beautiful Val and Lori, brought a tear to my eye, as my Dad passed a month today.
Beautiful memories to have and to hold.✨
Yes, I knew it would hit a raw nerve with you. It gets easier with time, but it never truly goes away. Thinking of you!
such a beautiful poem
Thank you Val & Lori for this perfect poem.
Even though we have never met I truly feel a connection with you two ladies.
It is 7 years minus 1 day since my Dad passed away.
I miss him everyday.
Thank you for reaching out Pamela! Your words are exactly what I needed to hear today!
I guess we will always feel a little bit empty. Makes sense when you’re missing a piece of your heart!
I read this poem through tears but with a smile. It brought back memories close to my heart as I was a daddy’s girl too and I wouldn’t have traded it for anything. Thanks so much for making me slow down and reminisce a while and thanks to our dads for making us so proud to be daddy’s girls.
It was so great to see you tonight. You are truly a beautiful person!
Beautiful Really beautiful……..first couple of years are so reflective and glad that’s not just me…
Always love your posts : )
Always good to hear from you Leslie! I sincerely hope our paths cross soon!
What a beautiful poem girls xoxo
You’re a fan favourite Dawn!
Well done. Left me teary eyed. Don’t think the sad part will ever go away_ maybe it shouldn’t.
Sadness is the price we pay for loving someone so hard. We’re lucky to have that kind of ❤ in our lives!
