Your Photograph

Posted by Still Waters , 20 March 2011 · 134 views

Reaching for your photograph
To clear the dust away
You are looking back at me
And I can hear you say

"Always be yourself, my child
Don't live your life a lie
Show the world the real you
And hold your head up high"

These words I have remembered
Memories close and true
I wanted you to be proud of me
The way I'm proud of you

So thank you dad... for all you did
And all you've given me
As I gently set your picture down
So you again can see

See me, your daughter, missing you
As tears flow from my eyes
But I wipe them hastily
And hold my head up high

See dad? You taught me well
