> A Dads Poem
>
> Her hair was up in a pony tail,
> her favorite dress tied with a bow.
> Today was Daddy's Day at school,
> and she couldn't wait to go.
>
> But her mommy tried to tell her,
> that she probably should stay home.
> Why the kids might not understand,
> if she went to school alone.
>
> But she was not afraid;
> she knew just what to say.
> What to tell her classmates
> of why he wasn't there today.
>
> But still her mother worried,
> for her to face this day alone.
> And that was why once again,
> she tried to keep her daughter home.
>
> But the little girl went to school
> eager to tell them all.
> About a dad she never sees
> a dad who never calls.
>
> There were daddies along the wall in back,
> for everyone to meet.
> Children squirming impatiently,
> anxious in their seats
>
> One by one the teacher called
> a student from the class.
> To introduce their daddy,
> as seconds slowly passed.
>
> At last the teacher called her name,
> every child turned to stare.
> Each of them was searching,
> a man who wasn't there.
>
> "Where's her daddy at?"
> she heard a boy call out.
> "She probably doesn't have one,"
> another student dared to shout.
>
> And from somewhere near the back,
> she heard a daddy say,
> "Looks like another deadbeat dad,
> too busy to waste his day."
>
> The words did not offend her,
> as she smiled up at her Mom.
> And looked back at her teacher,
> who told her to go on.
> And with hands behind her back,
> slowly she began to speak.
> And out from the mouth of a child,
> came words incredibly unique
>
> "My Daddy couldn't be here,
> because he lives so far away.
> But I know he wishes he could be,
> since this is such a special day.
> And though you cannot meet him,
> I wanted you to know.
> All about my daddy,
> and how much he loves me so.
>
> He loved to tell me stories
> he taught me to ride my bike.
> He surprised me with pink roses,
> and taught me to fly a kite.
>
> We used to share fudge sundaes,
> and ice cream in a cone.
> And though you cannot see him.
> I'm not standing here alone.
>
> "Cause my daddy's always with me,
> even though we are apart
> I know because he told me,
> he'll forever be in my heart"
>
> With that, her little hand reached up,
> and lay across her chest.
> Feeling her own heartbeat,
> beneath her favorite dress.
>
> And from somewhere here in the crowd of dads,
> her mother stood in tears.
> Proudly watching her daughter,
> who was wise beyond her years.
>
> For she stood up for the love
> of a man not in her life.
> Doing what was best for her,
> doing what was right.
>
> And when she dropped her hand back down,
> staring straight into the crowd.
> She finished with a voice so soft,
> but its message clear and loud.
>
> "I love my daddy very much,
> he's my shining star.
> And if he could, he'd be here,
> but heaven's just too far
> You see he was a policeman
> and died just this past year
> When airplanes hit the towers
> and taught Americans to fear.
>
> But sometimes when I close my eyes,
> it's like he never went away."
> And then she closed her eyes,
> and saw him there that day.
> And to her mothers amazement,
> she witnessed with surprise.
> A room full of daddies and children,
> all starting to close their eyes.
>
> Who knows what they saw before them,
> who knows what they felt inside.
> Perhaps for merely a second,
> they saw him at her side.
> "I know you're with me Daddy,"
> to the silence she called out.
> And what happened next made believers,
> of those once filled with doubt.
>
> Not one in that room could explain it,
> for each of their eyes had been closed.
> But there on the desk beside her,
> was a fragrant long-stemmed pink rose.
>
> And a child was blessed, if only for a moment,
> by the love of her shining star.
> And given the gift of believing,
> that heaven is never too far.
>
> They say it takes a minute to find a special
> person, an hour to appreciate them,
> a day to love them, but then an entire
> life to forget them.
>
> Send this to the people you'll never forget and
> remember to send it also to the person that sent
> it to you. It's a short message to let them know
> that you'll never forget them.
>
> If you don't send it to anyone, it means you're
> in a hurry and that you've forgotten your
> friends.
>
> Take the time...to live and ! love.
> Until eternity. God bless
