I Called Him Daddy

I called him Daddy.
He called me Baby.

We weren't rich
But, he worked hard
and provided for all of us

The only guy in a house full of girls

He never wore suits
just work clothes, shoes or boots. 
Except for my wedding day - 
the day he gave me away.

But, he didn't give me away -
not really.
Because he was always my daddy
and I was always his baby,
until the day he passed away.

Happy Father's Day, Daddy
I miss you so much
- today and always -
