Dear Daddy

Your battle is now over; no more tears flowing down your cheek,
no more pain, no more suffering; now you are no longer weak.
I still do not understand why this had to happen to you,
but I am proud to say you are my dad, the greatest man I ever knew.
You were always there for me and never once made me cry
until the day you closed your eyes and had to say goodbye.
Now you are my Angel, so spread your wings out wide.
Please wrap them around me whenever you see me cry.
Our time together was memorable, and God took you way too fast,
But the most precious thing to me was your being there for my first breath
and me being there for your last.
