He was so proud of his little girl.
It was her very first day of school.
He walked with her to school that day,
And she held his hand all the way.

They walked together quite and sad,
A little girl and her loving dad.
Into the school her father led,
But he almost cried when she said,

"Daddy, Daddy, please don't go.
Don't leave me here all alone.
I will miss you if you go away,
And I might need you, can't you stay?

" Little daughter, please don't cry.
You will be okay, so dry your eyes.
You have our memories in your heart.
We are together though we are apart ".

He sat upfront on her wedding day,
And cried as his daughter walked away.
Later that night he watched her dance.
He sat there waiting for his chance.

The band started to play their song.
Father and daughter danced along.
She looked at him and saw a tear,
Then leaned and whispered in his ear,

" Daddy, Daddy, I have to go.
I hate to leave you all alone.
I will miss you when I go away,
But if you need me then I will stay".

"Little daughter, I will be just fine.
I will love you always; you are mine.
I have our memories in my heart.
We are together though we are apart".

She came in his room and kissed his head,
Then sat next to his hospital bed.
He took her hand and held it tight,
And wished he had the strength to fight.
They sat together, quiet and sad,
A daughter and her dying dad.

He saw the tears she tried to hide,
She looked at him and then she cried.
"Daddy, Daddy, please don't go.
Don't leave me here all alone.
I will miss you when you go away.
I still need you; you have to stay".

" Little daughter, I love you so.
I want to stay but have to go.
I will always be here in your heart.
We are together though we are apart ".
