I wrote this poem in dedication to my 2 year old daughter, whom I have not seen in almost 3 months. I am currently battling her mother for custody. This poem reflects on a starry dark summer night when I pointed to a star.

Daddy's Star-

Sittin in this old rockin chair..
thinkin about her soft brown hair
beautiful big blue eyes
an a smile that could reach the skies
thinkin about how her eyes dance when she laughs,
how she enjoys takin those long bubble baths,
with her duckies in the water, and a washcloth
draped over her head, i smiled with pride as i bowed my head,
closed my eyes..an said..thank you jesus, thank you lord,
for givin me..the most precious gift of all, my beautiful baby girl,
and memories to hang on the wall.
"Daddy walk with me, Daddy hold my hand...Daddy, Daddy, Daddy,"
Words that melted my heart of stone, after hearing those words,
I knew I would never be alone.
Sittin in this old rockin chair,
thinkin about why..life isn't fair,
But remembering, my little girl..will always be there,
I picked out a star on a dark summer night,
looked at my baby, pointed an said..no matter where,
no matter how far..if you need me..look for that star..
and i will..i will be right there no matter where..no matter how far,
Babygirl, jus remember to look for Daddys Star..
I'll be shining bright..every night..
When Im all alone, and feeling blue,
when I dont know where you are, or how far,
I'll look into the skies..an find Briley's Star.
I know you'll be shining bright..every night.
Sittin in this old rocking chair...
looking out the window, starin up at the sky,
asking myself why..then i see the star..
Briley's Star, shining brightly down..
thinkin an wishin..hopin an prayin..
Briley found..Daddy's Star...<3
