Happy Fathers Day, Daddy

To My Daddy

A gift for you on Fathers Day,
What on earth could it be?
I know the gift you really want,
Is to once again, have me.
Or perhaps the gift of understanding,
To make sense of a senseless loss.

I'm sorry, my dearest Daddy,
But for those gifts, you must talk to the boss.
The gifts that I can give today,
Are memories, both sad and sweet.
From the touch of your hand on Mummy's tummy,
To my tiny little feet.

Remember the joy you felt inside,
When you found out you would be my Daddy?
The great big smiles upon your face,
You were over the moon, you were so happy.
Remember when you felt me move,
The wonder and love you'd feel?
Remember it today Daddy,
It just might help you heal.
Remember the little cuddles we had,
And the moments that we shared.

Remember my little nose,
And the colour of my hair,
I love you dearest Daddy, you know that this is true.
Just keep your memories of me alive,
And I will always live in you.

I love you daddy, I miss you so so much. I know that you came to see me today, with mummy and Blake. Thanks for my beautiful flowers.

Love your little angel

Thank for sharing those beautiful pictures of Skyla with her daddy and the poem it brought tears to my eyes.

I wanted to share with you how much your little girl has touched me. Even though I live on the other side of the world and I have only known Skyla and your family through this blog she has made a huge impact in my life. I think of Skyla often. She was so brave and strong.

She has taught be to live each life to the fullest and to never give up hope.

Thanks for keeping up with the blog. I enjoy reading both your blogs and seeing how you and your family are doing.

Take Care
