Her hair was up in a ponytail
Her favorite dress tied with a bow
Today was Daddy's Day at school
And she couldn't wait to go.
But her mommy tried to tell her,
That she probably should stay home.
Why the kids might not understand,
If she went to school alone.
But she was not afraid;
She knew just what to say.
What to tell her classmates
Of why he wasn't there today.
But still her mother worried,
For her to face this day alone.
And that was why once again,
She tried to keep her daughter home.
But the little girl went to school,
Eager to tell them all.
About a dad she never sees,
A dad who never calls.
There were daddies along the wall in back,
For everyone to meet
Children squirming impatently,
Anxious in their seats.
One by one the teacher called,
Each student from the class.
To introduce their daddy,
As seconds slowly passed.
At last the teacher called her name,
Every child turned to stare.
Each of them was searching,
For a man who wasn't there.
"Where's her daddy at?"
She heard a boy call out.
"She probably doesn't have one"
Another student dared to shout.
And from somewhere near the back,
She heard a daddy say,
"Looks like another deadbeat dad,
Too busy to waste his day."
The words did not offened her,
As she smiled up at her mom.
And looked back at her teacher,
Who told her to go on.
And with hands behind her back,
Slowly she began to speak.
And out from the mouth of a child,
Came words incredibly unique.
"My daddy couldn't be here,
Because he lives so far away.
But I know he wishes he could be,
Since this is such a special day.
And though you cannot meet him,
I wanted you to know.
All about my daddy,
And how much he loves me so.
He loved to tell me stories
He taught me to ride my bike.
He surprised me with pink roses,
And taught me to fly a kite.
We used to share fudge sundaes,
and ice cream in a cone.
And though you cannot see him,
I'm not standing here alone.
Cause my daddy's always with me
Even though we are apart.
I know because he told me,
He'll forever be in my heart."
With that, her little hand reached up,
and lay across her chest.
Feeling her own heartbeat,
Beneath her favorite dress.
And from somewhere in the crowd of dads,
Her mother stood in tears.
Proudly watching her daughter,
Who was wise beyond her years.
For she stood up for the love
Of a man not in her life.
Doing what was best for her,
Doing what was right.
And when she dropped her hand back down,
Staring straight into the crowd.
She finished with a voice so soft,
But its message clear and loud.
"I love my daddy very much,
He's my shining star.
And if he could he'd be here,
But heaven's just too far.
You see he was a fireman
And died just this past year.
When airplanes hit the towers
And taught Americans to fear.
But sometimes when I close my eyes,
It's like he never went away."
And then she closes her eyes,
And saw him there that day.
And to her mother's amazement,
She witnessed with surprise.
A room full of daddies and children,
All starting to close their eyes.
Who knows what they say before them,
Who knows what they felt inside.
Perhaps for merely a second,
They saw him at her side.
"I know you're with me Daddy."
To the silence she called out.
And what happened next made believers,
Of those once filled with doubt.
Not one in that room could explain it,
For each of their eyes had been closed.
But there on the desk beside her,
Was a fragrant long-stemmed pink rose.
And a child was blessed, if only for a moment,
By the love of her shining bright star.
And given the gift of believing,
That heaven is never too far- From the poem Daddy's Day, by Cheryl Costello-Forshey

The worst feeling isn't being lonely. It's being forgotten by someone you would never forget.- my sis Caitlyn

You're a special friend
Who I know is always there
Someone to share my life with
Every hope, dream, and care
Whenever I feel sad or alone
You're always there to make me smile
It's friends like you who I know
Wont leave me after a while
Special freinds like you
mean the world to me
When I think of something special
It's your face I see
All the time I've spent with you
Puts a smile upon my face
I hope one day I'll be with you again
Somehow, Sometime, Someplace
You mean a lot to me and I would
do anything in the world for you
So no matter what's going on in you life
Just know you have someone to turn to
You're a special person
I care a lot about you
I wish I could say how special you are
Only if you knew....- Chelsee

I sit here by myself in the dark
And it's you who's on my mind
I try to count the days for you
But I cant keep track of time
I want you here by my side
I want you in my arms
For when I'm lying next to you
I feel safe from any harm
I miss talking to you all night long
I miss the things you'd say
The crazy thing about this is
I miss you more everyday- Chelsee

"I Miss It All"
I miss the days we used to talk
And both sit upon the ground
I miss you making me laugh
Without even making a sound
I miss how it was fit together
Like we were so ment to be
I miss all that we had
When it was only you and me
I miss how you used to smile
Whenever I was walking in a swirl
I miss the fact we were one
There was no other girl
I miss the breath taking kisses
And the hugs we used to share
I miss you holding me tight
When nobody was there
I miss all the nights we spent
And how you loved my pants
I miss how it was ment to be
But we quickly lost the chance
I miss you, and I still can't say
How i want you baby so much
I miss how my heart could fly
Before it suffered cupid's touch
I miss running into your arms
The only person was true
But the thing I miss the most
is simply... Being loved by you!- Beninem

“My Love For You”
When I first met you baby I knew right at the start
I was going to love you from the depths of my heart
Love is like an ocean, it flows and flows away
The emotions growing stronger, deeper everyday
When I think about the future and all it holds in store
Your love is like a golden key that can open any door
There’s nothing I need more than to share a life with you
I’ll give you every piece of me and I’ll promise to be true
I want to hold you in my arms and whisper in your ear
Tell you all my silly secrets, ease your anxious fears
You’re my swinging angel sent from the stars above
You put a smile on my face and fill my heart with love
I wake up in the morning, you’re the first thing on my mind
I go to sleep in darkness and you’re in all the dreams I find
There’s a magic between us that’s invisible for most to see
I love you so very deeply and I thank you for loving me
There’s a beauty in your soul that runs from the inside out
The smile upon your gorgeous face leaves me with no doubts
A twinkle in your loving eyes that’s shining down on me
It tells me everything I need to know, you are my destiny- beninem

You call my best friend and give her your new phone number and expect me not to know. She's grounded and I check her messages and I thought she was a "Stupid Hoe". What happened to that, please explain that to me? She doesn't want to talk to you, cant you see? She told you that you were loved and she wasn't lying. But you see it was me not her, and you left me here crying. You cheated, lied and broke my heart. And it was my best friend that you wanted from the start. I dont blame her because she's in love. But I can promise it's not you she's thinking of. I wish I could uncry all of the tears I've cried over you. Because I've finally realized that none of this was worth the s**t I new you were gonna put me through.- memory

I woke up in the middle of the night and I noticed my girl wasn't by my side. I could've sworn I was dreamin, for her I was feenin so I had to take a little ride. Back trackin' on these few years tyin' to figure out what I did to make it go bad 'cause ever since my girl left me my whole life came crashin' and I'm so Lonely.
Can't believe I had a girl like you and I just let you walk right out of my life. After all I put you through, you still stuck around and stayed by my side. What really hurt me was I broke your heart, baby you a good girl and I had no right. I really want to make things right 'cause without you in my life girl I'm so Lonely.
Been all about the world, aint never met a girl like you that could take the things you've been through. Never thought the day would come where you would get up and run and I would be out chasin' you. 'Cause aint nowhere in the globe I'd rather be. Aint no one in the globe I'd rather see than the girl of my dreams that made me be so happy but now so Lonley.
Never thought that I'd be alone. I didn't think you'd be gone this long. I just want you to call my phone. So stop playin' girl and come on home. Baby girl I didn't mean to shout. I want me and you to work it out. I never wished I'd ever hurt my baby and it's drivin' me crazy 'cause I'm so Lonely.
Mr. Lonely, I have nobody, for my own.
Lonely, I'm so Lonely, I have nobody, to call my own. I'm Mr. Lonely- Akon

Ever since the day you went away, and left me so lonely and cold. My life just hasn't been the same oh baby no. When I looked into your eyes, the moment that I let you go, I just broke down. Baby if I ever get the chance to be with you again I would sacrifice, 'cause the feelin that I feel within no other man, would make me feel so right. It's nice to smile whin I get your phone call at night, but I rather have you here with me, right next to me. And I miss the way you hold me tight. I've got to let you know I feel so weak without your touch. I never thought that I could ever love a man so much. I've gotta let you know I think that we are destiny. For you I'd cross the you world. For you I'd do anything. That's right baby, I'm going crazy. I need to be your lady. I've been thinking lately that you and me, yes, we can make it. Just ride with me, rool with me. I'm in love with you.
Brak it down thin I'll tell you what I feel. From the moment that I met you it's been so damn real. My hear seems to skip another beat every time we speak. Can't believe I feel so weak. Tell me that you really need me, and you want me, and you miss me, and you love me. I'm your lady. I'll be around waiting for you. Put it down, be with the woman for you. I'm fallin so deep for you. Crazy over you. I'm calling, calling out to you. What am I gonna do? It's true, no frontin', it's you, aint no other. I can no longer go on withou you. I just break down.
I've got to let you know I feel so weak without your touch. I never thought that I could ever love a man this much. I've gotta let you know, I think that we are destiny. For you I'd cross the world. For you, I'd do anything. I'm going crazy.- natalie
