Daddy I love you still. Daddy, watching you from the time you worked, retired, use tools to fix things, cut grass, and sometimes take me to class.
Daddy I love you still, even when you became ill, loss your independence,
Cuss Fuss, and sometimes forgot your sentence, I love you still as I felt like this wasn’t real.
God new that I would be able to care for you,
Love and cherish my Daddy too.
If I had it my way, I would have asked God to let you stay.
No more pain, God had the last say.
Daddy I love you still,
Yes, I always will.
