I Said Good-bye to Dad Today
< I walked proudly holding my
daddy’s big hand. Little steps
hurrying to keep up with his
I said good-bye today.
Stiff, defiant shoulders
squared against dad’s authority.
I’m almost an adult my every
step announced. I’m ready
to be out on my own.
I said good-by today.
My shoulders sag and groan
beneath the weight of responsibility.
Dad’s voice just a phone call away.
His laughter lifts the weight so I
can laugh one more time.
I said a final good-by to my daddy today.>
