I still remember Daddy's hugs
And his kisses too
The gentle way that he would say
"Honey I love you"

Remember when he came from work
Raiding his lunch pail
There was always a treat for me
It would never fail

When it came time to ride a bike
He was by my side
Kissing scraped up elbows and knees
Wiping tears I'd cried

He taught me how to tie my shoes
Bought me a football
Took me along on fishin' trips
Did not mind at all

Daddy would let me stay up late
We would watch the stars
He'd teach me about outer space
Little men from Mars

I remember trips to the lake
Picnics in the park
Car rides to the dairy queen
When it was after dark

My Daddy was more than a Dad
He was my friend too
Now that he is gone to heaven
I am sad and blue

Yet I remember Daddy's hugs
And his kisses too
The gentle way that he would say
"Honey I love you"

Such a treasure box of happy memories you would not trade for fancy trinkets I would say. Lucky you, girl
