poem-daughter taken before cancer

My Darling Daughter 

My darling daughter i feel as we aught-a

be together forever as my heart is torn apart

to lose you now in this would be a disgrace

to our own human race


if it were down to me i'd hug you all day and kiss 

you all night my little miss flesh and blood


don't despair your angel is here we soon be together

don't be scared cause i'm coming for you darling quick i'm nearly there


i'd climb the mountain, i'd swim the ocean

and run around the world that's the notion


to hold you in my arms you are my world 

can't you hear the alarms

they try as they might to take you from me but that ain't happening 

you wait and see

no matter what he tells you don't get it wrong 

i love you my darling and that's our song
