    so many years ago
    her Daddy
    dried her tears
    and held her
    in his arms
    when she
    felt the world
    had come to
    an end
    because
    Ellis was
    making time
    with another
    girl at school

    he told her
    Ellis and
    no other man
    would love
    her more
    than he..

    Daddy told her he was
    all the boyfriend
    she would ever
    need...

    somehow
    this didn't
    console her
    young &
    aching heart

    but her Daddy
    knew her
    better
    than she
    knew herself

    said so, too
    said he knew
    what she was gonna think
    before the thought
    even crossed her mind...

    knew things about her
    she never even mentioned

    cuz she was made
    from him
    and they shared
    the same heart

    said he could see
    into the future, too
    with tears in his
    own eyes

    that must be why
    she's wanting
    her Daddy's arms
    around her
    all these years
    later...

    so her tears
    can tell him
    what his
    heart already
    knows

    a..my daddy's been gone for 15 years and I still long to feel his arms around me and put my head on his chest when I cry my tears, even though I know it can't happen...but reading this bought him back to me...for a fleeting moment...thank you for this......
