“My daughters poem to me” by Matthew Shepherd

My youngest daughter wrote this for me. I thought I would share. She’s a beautiful 14 year old and shes smart and strong. We talk almost everyday. Im so proud of her! I love you princess Em!!!!

I am a daughter of an amazing dad.
I wonder what life would be like if this didn’t take place.
I see pictures of you.
I want you to be here with me.
I am a daughter of an amazing dad.

I pretend that everything is normal.
I feel incomplete.
I touch your heart through the phone.
I worry about you.
I cry when I hear your voice.
I am a daughter of an amazing dad.

I understand that not everything can go how you want it to.
I say it’ll all end soon.
I dream that the special day will come sooner.
I try to see the positive side in this.
I hope you’re doing good.
I am a daughter of an amazing dad.
