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.
