Did I say how much I loved you,
Daddy dear, when you were here?
Though you knew it, were they truly
Words you would have liked to hear?
I’m always bragging of you Daddy,
Comparing you to other men.
Not a one can ever match you.
I am bragging once again.
It would have been so easy
To have said those words aloud.
I could have told you that I loved you,
And you always made me proud.
I’m sorry that I didn’t say it then.
I loved you and you were the best of men.
