The Only Father I Knew

The Only Father I Knew

The only Father I Knew |


We never had the memories of how I grew up


We never spent lazy weekends playing games or watching cartoons


We never had fun days at the movies or playing games


We never spent hours just talking about how life was


We never made it to the Father – Daughter dances


We never had all of our second chances


No, We never did



You stood up for me against the words others spoke


I still hear the pride when you said ‘She’s mine’


You loved me the best you could when you could


I still feel the hugs you gave – they never went away


You gave me all you knew how even when you couldn’t be there


I still wish it was more – but I know it wasn’t all your fault


Yes, I know that

On this Father’s Day and on all the rest


I write out these feelings straight from my heart


Though your life was short your love was true


I may never know the full story


But the one thing I know is


You were the only father I knew
