    Who will give you Daddy Hugs
    Who will kill those mean little bugs
    Who will tuck you in at night
    When thunder roars
    Who willl hold you tight

    Those little girl days
    Forever remain deep in my heart
    As I count down the days
    Before we must part

    I struggle to find the words to say
    How much you mean to me
    How I adore you
    ****... I knew I was going to cry
    Thinking of you not being here
    The apple of your daddy's eye

    I've been going over all the things we do
    From movies and having ice cream
    To talking and reading newspapers
    And watching Comicview

    You've kept me young and silly
    Giving me the specialness
    of a daughters unrestricted love
    I wonder if you'll be alright
    without your daddy's hug

    BE :(

    I've been reading

    and re-reading, and I'm feeling what you're feeling...remembering when I went away when it was my time to fly from the nest.
    But my Father was resourceful and very economical... so that the very next time we laid eyes on each other, we embraced tightly for several minutes.

    Save all your Daddy Hugs. I guarantee they'll still be needed.

    Beautifully expressed, BE. Thank you for sharing.

    Having 1 daughter and 3 sons, I remember the difference when it was her turn to go off to college. I was pitiful. Stayed in a motel nearby for four days just in case she needed anything.

    It's gonna be a little rough, Brotha. But it eases up after a while. And the other thing is, the girls come back. She's grown, on her own, and right down the street in the next town. We get together every other weekend. There are rays that peek through the gray. You'll begin to see it, in time.

    Peace

    Not to worry my brother
    you must trust in her father up above
    to shower her with love
    and
    protect her step from harm
    when she can no longer lean on a fathers arm

    been there done that, feelin this one poet

    I am blessed to still have my father, and although he was never the hugging type, he made it clear to us all that we were loved. I I still see him every other weekend, and your poem makes me smile.
