A Daddy's love shown through eyes... Passed down...
My Daddy’s Eyes

I look into my Daddy’s eyes,
He softly hums a lullaby.

My tears have long since dried away –
I’d given up my fight to play
And with the gentle rocking sweep
He’ll carry me to peaceful sleep.

I look into my Daddy’s eyes
And sit before him, fear disguised –

I knew my fate was surely sealed
When he got home from work and kneeled,
A sentence harsh, my punishment,
And to my room I slowly went.

I look into my Daddy’s eyes
And his approval was my prize

For I had found a perfect man
That made me smile like no one can.
He knew that instant it was real
And gave permission – “seal the deal.”

I look into my Daddy’s eyes,
We say our silent, short goodbyes.

I know it’s best, the pain’s too much –
So scared I am to even touch
For fear that I’ll remember well
The pain of this: our last farewell.

I look into my Daddy’s eyes –
They’re strong and wise, and never shy,

They’re hazel, brown, and sometimes green –
My own reflected back at me.
I stand before the mirror bright,
So ready now, all dressed in white.

I look into my Daddy’s eyes
Now echoed in my son’s small size.

It seems a legacy’s begun,
My father’s love won’t be undone.
It’s passed from him, to me, to boy
My Daddy’s eyes so full of joy.
