Sally’s Poem II for 3/22/17

DADDY

by Sally Stackhouse

Daddy, Daddy, Daddy

Yes Sally

There’s a spider in my room

I’ll come up with the broom

Daddy, Daddy, Daddy

Yes Sally

I can’t sleep tonight

I’ll come and hold you tight

Daddy, Daddy, Daddy

Yes Sally

Can you fix my dolly?

I’ll make her look bonny

Sally, Sally, Sally

Yes Daddy

Take that muck off your face

Your skirt is too short you look a disgrace

Sally, Sally, Sally,

Yes Daddy

Be in before midnight

Or the door is locked tight

Daddy, Daddy, Daddy,

Yes Sally

Will you give me away

On my wedding day

Daddy, Daddy, Daddy

Yes Sally

Here is your first grandson

With his hair that is auburn

Daddy, Daddy, Daddy

Yes Sally

Here is your granddaughter

She’ll bring us joy and laughter

Daddy, Daddy, Daddy

Yes Sally

I am a single mum now

I’ll help you through it somehow

Daddy, Daddy, Daddy

Yes Sally

I’ve found a new man to love again

Yes, he’s a good man

Daddy, Daddy, Daddy

Yes Sally

[written by Sally on the occasion

of her father’s 80th birthday]

    This is evidence of a very special relationship. I’m also glad you found your good new man. 🙂
