The People’s Quill: For Dad

By Patti Lienau

Daddy Daddy

Play with me

Bounce me soft

Upon your knee

 

Daddy Daddy

Hold me tight

Chase the shadows

out of sight

 

Daddy Daddy

Let me play

With my friends

I will not stray

 

Daddy Daddy

Let me drive

I promise to be

Home by five

 

Daddy Daddy

I cannot stay

Down the isle

Give me away

 

Daddy Daddy

Hold her awhile

She has your eyes

His gentle smile

 

Daddy Daddy

This I pray

For God to watch you

Every day

 

To keep you safe

To hold you near

To never let you walk in fear

 

And some day when

our God you meet

Speak well of me

And save a seat…..
