Subj:     Daddy's Pink Rose
          From: RFSlick on 5/21/2002
      and From: tom on 7/17/2008

 Get your kleenex out....You're going to need it!

 Her hair was up in a pony tail,
 her favorite dress tied with a bow.
 Today was Daddy's Day at school,
 and she couldn't wait to go.

 But her mommy tried to tell her,
 that she probably should stay home.
 Why the kids might not understand,
 if she went to school alone.

 But she was not afraid;
 she knew just what to say.
 What to tell her classmates
 of why he wasn't there today.

 But still her mother worried,
 for her to face this day alone.
 And that was why once again,
 she tried to keep her daughter home.

 But the little girl went to school,
 eager to tell them all.
 About a dad she never sees,
 a dad who never calls.

 There were daddies along the wall in back,
 for everyone to meet.
 Children squirming impatiently,
 anxious in their seats.

 One by one the teacher called,
 a student from the class.
 To introduce their daddy,
 as seconds slowly passed.

 At last the teacher called her name,
 every child turned to stare.
 Each of them was searching,
 for a man who wasn't there.

 "Where's her daddy at?"
 she heard a boy call out.
 "She probably doesn't have one,"
 another student dared to shout.

 And from somewhere near the back,
 she heard a daddy say,
 "Looks like another deadbeat dad,
 too busy to waste his day."

 The words did not offend her,
 as she smiled up at her Mom.
 And looked back at her teacher,
 who told her to go on.

 And with hands behind her back,
 slowly she began to speak.
 And out from the mouth of  a child,
 came words incredibly unique.

 "My Daddy couldn't be here,
 because he lives so far away.
 But I know he wishes he could be,
 since this is such a special day.

 And though you cannot meet him,
 I wanted you to know.
 All about my daddy,
 and how much he loves me so.

 He loved to tell me stories,
 he taught me to ride my bike.
 He surprised me with pink roses,
 and taught me to fly a kite.

 We used to share fudge sundaes,
 and ice cream in a cone.
 And though you cannot see him,
 I'm not standing here alone.

 'Cause my daddy's always with me,
 even though we are apart
 I know because he told me,
 he'll forever be in my heart"

 With that, her little hand reached up,
 and lay across her chest.
 Feeling her own heartbeat,
 beneath  her favorite dress.

 And from somewhere in the crowd of dads,
 her mother stood in tears.
 Proudly watching her daughter,
 who was wise beyond her years.

 For she stood up for the love
 of a man not in her life.
 Doing what was best for her,
 doing what was right.

 And when she dropped her hand back down,
 staring straight into the crowd.
 She finished with a voice so soft,
 but its message clear and loud.

 "I love my daddy very much,
 he's my shining star.
 And if he could, he'd be here,
 but heaven's just too far.

 You see he was a fireman
 and died just this past year
 When airplanes hit the towers
 and taught Americans to fear.

 But sometimes when I close my eyes,
 it's like he never went away."
 And then she closed her eyes,
 and saw him there that day.

 And to her mother's amazement,
 she witnessed with surprise.
 A room full of daddies and children,
 all starting to close their eyes.

 Who knows what they saw before them,
 who knows what they felt inside.
 Perhaps for merely a second,
 they saw him at her side.

 "I know you're with me Daddy,"
 to the silence she called out.
 And what happened next made believers,
 of those once filled with doubt.

 Not one in that room could explain it,
 for each of their eyes had been closed.
 But there on the desk beside her,
 was a fragrant long-stemmed pink rose.

 And a child was blessed, if only for a moment,
 by the love of her shining bright star.
 And given the gift of believing,
 that heaven is never too far

 Life is short.... Enjoy the important things.

          From: darrellvip on 7/14/2008 

 A handful of 7 year old children were asked, 'what they 
 thought of beer.' Some interesting responses, but the 
 last one is especially touching. 

 7-year-old Tim- 'I think beer must be good. My dad says 
 the more beer he drinks the prettier my mom gets.' 

 7-year-old Melanie - 'Beer makes my dad sleepy and we 
 get to watch what we want On television when he is asleep, 
 so beer is nice. 

 7-year-old Grady - 'My Mom and Dad both like beer. My 
 Mom gets funny when she drinks it and takes her top off at 
 parties, but Dad doesn't think this is very funny.' 

 7-year-old Toby - 'My Mom and Dad talk funny when they 
 drink beer and The more they drink the more they give 
 kisses to each other, which is a good thing.' 

 7-year-old Sarah - 'My Dad gets funny on beer. He is 
 funny. He also wets his pants sometimes, so he 
 shouldn't have too much. 

 7-year-old Lilly - 'My Dad loves beer. The more he 
 drinks, the better he dances. One time he danced right into 
 the pool.' 

 7-year-old Ethan - 'I don't like beer very much. 
 Every time Dad drinks it, he burns the sausages on the 
 barbecue and they taste disgusting.' 

 7-year-old Shirley - 'I give Dad's beer to the dog 
 and he goes to sleep.' 

 7-year-old Jack - 'My Mom drinks beer and she says 
 silly things and picks on my father. Whenever she drinks 
 beer she yells at D ad and tells him to go bury his bone 
 down the street again, but that doesn't make any
