My daughter once gave me a heart,
A heart full of love and tenderness,
A heart full of trust and respect,
A heart that spoke to me of a dad…
A dad, who cared,
A dad, who loved,
A dad, who taught,
A dad, who was patient,
A dad, who was always there.
Wherever you go dad,
Carry this heart with you, she said,
To remind you of me.
My daughter, my daughter, where are you?
I miss you!
