Favorite Quote:
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

Daddy, I knew so little of you,
You were taken from me before I grew,
Into a child that was conscious and knew,
The meanings of such tragedies,
To lose your father at such an early age,
Puts things rather out of pace,
To be exempt from those special days,
Those bonding moments we’ll never have,
You never taught me to ride a bike,
Or saw me go to secondary school,
And on my wedding day,
You’ll never give me away,
But Dad you’d be so proud of me,
If you could see who I’ve come to be,
Daddy who I know so little of,
I’ll never understand your mind,
But I know you were strong, smart, passionate and kind,
Daddy, I know so little of you,
I miss you.
