Dear Hailey

Seen my girl play n with her big smile just never seemed to get old. Me and her mother never seemed to stay togther but for her i did it all. Thts wht he wrote before tht day, wht any father would for any child. Walking along side from her, he loved walking with her he loved tht so much Anytime with her he kept in his heart n her smile in his head, motivation and will power Is wht she gave her dad, for her he ever cried his heart out, worked n took all wht people Said at him, he cared less because for everyday worked it was money to help n feed his kid. Pride, courage n limits went out the window, his daughter was all he had to live for. As they walked , just hearing a car turning the corner at a high speed those back wheels trying to get traction, burning rubber tht sound tht just gets ur mind protective mood because nothing good can come out of tht, from the corner of his eye he saw it coming car out of control, his life was not of importants but his daughter was worth giving up his, as he jumped wrapping his daughter from the car, as it ran over him he felt no pain, thts if there was any pain to be felt, his attention was on keeping his daughter safe in his body. As the car took off, he was in n out, keeping an eye on his daughter making sure she was ok, he couldnt hear nor talk, but he knew if he tried blood was to burst and didnt want tht image in his daughter mind, as the ambulence came and took his daugther, he smiled, paramedics were glad he was smiling but then started to burst blood with foam, started shaking as he closed his eyes. They didnt give up on him, they did there best n it was good enough, but his daughter wanted to see her dad, on the side of his bed his daughter was telling him to get up, asking mommy why dad didnt want to talk and sleeping, his hand extented out to her. His daughter grabbed his hand, all he wanted was to feel his daughter again and hear again as he got wht he asked for, he accpeted his death.
