“Daddy and Me,” photograph of my Dad, Edward Hyford Myers, and me taken on my wedding day; the happiest day of my life.
Daddy (a Father’s Day tribute). There are so many things that I wish to tell you Daddy, things that I’ll cherish forever…
Daddy (a Father’s Day tribute)
I’ve always been told that I look just like you,
with your skin such a rich shade of brown.
And my quiet, gentle nature, that comes from you too,
Daddy, those things make me smile, and never frown.
I remember the many special times we’ve shared when I was a child;
the times you took us fishing, and to the beach, and to the zoo.
It’s not so much what we did or where we went,
Daddy, what made them special, was just being with you.
I’m sure it wasn’t always easy, raising a family and all.
We three girls kept you and Mom busy; always being on the go!
It may not seem like I paid attention to what you’d tell me at times,
Daddy, rest assured, it was from you that I’ve learned so much that I know.
There are so many qualities that I see in and admire about you.
Your patience, your caring, your wisdom and versatility;
They all reflect your sincere faith and trust in the Lord,
Daddy, thank you so much for being such a strong example to me.
We are so much alike, in so many ways;
and even though we don’t always say much aloud,
I’ve always felt a closeness to you, a bond that will always be.
Daddy, I love you; and having you as my father makes me proud.
