A Precious One

A daughter's love to her dad

God gave someone you and he gave me to you, a precious gift,
In your arms I was placed from the moment I was born,
Too young to know and to understand, yet in your arms I felt I belonged,
From the very first day, you nurtured and cared. 

You never wandered off far from me,
You watched me grow day by day,
You continued to love and care along the way,
You were there for my first step and my first word.

It brought you so much joy and a tear,
I brought you smiles, laughter and fun,
In return you loved me as if I was the only one,
You held my hands as you guided me along.

From morning to night till the sun goes down,
As the years go by you remembered the day,
Like it was, only yesterday,
Now I’m all grown up, no more a precious little one,
Into the kind of woman you prayed I’d become.

Now several years have passed and distance apart,
I always kept you close to my heart.
When life got too tough, you'd lend me your ear
You reassured me, that you will always be there.

Now God has taken you away without a warning,
Leaving behind lots of tears and mourning.
Although so many years have passed
I still feel the emptiness in my heart.

I know someday soon we will meet again
But until then I will keep you close to my heart,
I will forever be your Precious One
And you will forever be my "DAD".
