His daddy one loved him
from flesh and skin.
His daddy now loves him
from his spirit within.
To have and to hold
a baby so bold,
He's doing okay
without his daddy today.
For his daddy's not there
in flesh and skin
His daddy is there
from his spirit within.

The author's comments:
What inspired me was the death of my mom's boyfriend. He had an almost two year old son named Michael. I wrote this for Michael so he would never forget the amazing dad he had.
