A Chuck Weiskircher Poem © 12/16/2014
Daddy’s and daughter’s share a bond
Both of each other are very fond
Daddy’s teach them how a man should be
Sometimes sharing a picnic under a tree.
Daddy’s treat their daughters with respect
Or else their daydreams may get wrecked.
Daddy’s open doors and seat their daughters
And shelter them from splashing waters.
Daughters get to choose their favorite food
Daddy’s respect them without being rude.
They smile and laugh during the meal
Even when Daddy starts his spiel.
“Disrespectful men are not worth your time;
You are worthy of each one joining the line.
Love and respect go hand in hand
True love is something very grand”
The rest of the speech is seldom heard
Sometimes Daddy’s can be such nerds.
It seems too soon when they must leave
Arm in arm she holds Daddy’s sleeve.
As they drive home along the way
Daddy has much he wants to say
How men should treat the women they love
With respect and gentleness as a dove
At the end of the night it is time for bed
And a favorite bedtime story is read
Of a brave knight and a princess fair
Who let down her golden hair.
