There he lies in bed.
This is what I dread.
He is very sick,
Why is it him God had to pick?

I love him dearly.
He's my light when it's dark and dreary.
His heart is always warm,
His love for me stronger than any storm.

His sickness cuts him like a knife,
But he has the breath to say,
I'm the light of his life.

Daddy I love you dearly...
