Daddy's Little Girl

If I had my life to do over,
I'd have chosen you to be my dad
once more.
Even if it meant losing you again,
It's worth all the tears in the
world.
You were my sunshine when skies
were gray.
I loved you and honored you;
You took all my tears away.
I was happy to be with you,
Proud to be your little girl.
Sometimes we would argue,
But to me you meant the world.
Your love was always pure;
You treated me as your own.
Your time seemed all too short and
I feel so alone.
What can I take from this?
My heart is completely crushed.
But nothing loved is ever lost -
And you are loved so much.

I just lost my father yesterday at the age of 54 years old. My heart is breaking because I am and always will be "Daddy's girl" but now he is no longer on this earth in body. This poem just hit dead on what I feel right now. I love my father so much and miss him and am hurting so bad right now, but I will always love him and be proud of the way he raised me.

Krystal
I loved it. I am 17 and I lost my dad in a car accident on October 14, 2005. He was my best friend for years and I was completely torn apart when he passed away. When my father died i really felt like nothing in life mattered anymore and all i wanted to do was give up. And i did give up for a little while. But it poems like this that help me through my hard times. It really helps to just think that he passed for a reason and i will see him again someday! Thanks for the Help!

I really liked you poem. It really hit home for me. The lose of a love one feels like its over. Thank you for putting this poem out for people to see.
Jess
I think this poem touched me because there is nothing more hurtful than loosing someone especially your father. You can loose someone and not be able to get over it, but still you should be able to move on over a long period of time. Hope you are okay.
mitch

Amanda
My father and dad ( the same person 2 different person's with 2 different meanings, if you understand what I mean) passed away when I was ten years old so this poem meant alot to me when I read it and I think that it is a sweet way to express your love and pain of him.
Triona

This poem is very nice and sweet, it is very had to lose your father. but even if you haven't lost him yet but you fear that it's going to come soon. I am my daddys little girl he is my life him and my mother. I don't think i could go on with life if this was to happen to me

stephanie
ireally liked this poem because it touchedmy heart and i my self is my daddy's little girl idon't know what i would do if something happen to my daddy
mackenzie
this is one of the few poems that really hit me. a week ago, my dad and i were headed into town and a drunk driver crossed the center line and hit our car head on. my dad died. sometimes, you don't realize how important a dad is until it's too late and they're gone. dad's are super special and this poem explains how wonderful they really are.
Victoria
This poem touched me b-cuz me and my father was very close and i was his punkin. i also was daddys baby girl. but that all changed on july, 14 2003 when my dad was killed by his fiance.

Still-grieving
I was very, very close to my father. He was the best dad in the world! He died of cancer 10 years ago, but it seems like yesterday. His death shattered my life in a way that I haven't yet been able to pick the pieces together, and never will. I'm grateful for the sympathy and affection shown to me by others. But compared to the deep & unconditional love of my father, the gestures of others seem superficial and insufficient. This beautiful poem fits so well into my life that it's just too difficult not to be moved into tears each time I read it. I've saved it for future reference. I thank the writer of this lovely poem and I can so well understand her grief.
heather

Hayley

kaci
I love this poem!it reminds me of my father. He died last year because of lung failure. he was always in and out of the hospital since he was like 29 years old. He got a double lung transplant in 2004. And the doctors said he would live a year or two. but he only lived one year. He died october 28 2005. That night when he told me he need to go to the hospital and i didnt listened because I didnt want him to leave me again. So i wish i could have him back one day and tell him how much i love him!
