This poem displays perfectly the way i felt towards my dad, i too only wish that he were still to hug me good-night. i used to follow him everywhere and it never mattered what we did as long as we were together, but now hes gone.

just so completely precious

Daddy

Waking in the morning
I couldn't hardly wait
To start a new adventure
Never wanted to be late.

Tiny little feet
Running after you
Holding your hand
All the day thru.

Riding on the tractor
In the bright hot sun
Plowing in the fields
What a day of fun!

Playing in the barnyard
With a piglet or two
Didn't matter what we did
As long as I was with you.

Growing up with you
Was my heart's delight
Wish you were still here
To hug me "goodnight".
