I miss you so much daddy...this month is your birthday..i have a poem for you.

See you in my dreams..
The smell of grease and old spice brings to mind
The years of my childhood left far behind
The time I had no worries and you were all that mattered
Then in an instant the life I knew was shattered

Your birthday is coming, just a few days away
I don't understand how I made it to this day
I still see your smile and kind blue eyes
I know you are watching from somewhere in the skies

A thought of you comes to my mind every day
What would you do, what would you say
In life's situations, when love goes astray
I don't have you here to tell me its okay

I live my life they way you might have wanted
Learning from my mistakes so I am not haunted
People ask, "What would your father say"
I simply say "I never knew him that way"

I miss you daddy, I wish you were here
To walk me through the hard times and help cure my fears
I see you often, in my dreams at night
And wake up so happy in the morning light

People said it would get easier as time went on
But the people that said that were so very wrong.
The tears come down harder as the days are so long
The only relief is listing to your songs

I wonder what it would be like if you were still here
The pain that I feel would be no where near
Together again is so far so it seems
Until that day Daddy, I will see you in my dreams

In memory of:
Charles William Maddex
The best father a daughter can have
