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…..
