Stand With Me Daddy

Stand with me daddy,
And hold my hand tight.
My future is before me,
I need to know I will be alright.

Stand with me daddy,
As I go forth into the world.
I remember the values you have taught me
Yes, they have taken their hold.

Stand with me daddy,
When I make tough decisions.
I know life is not fair,
But can’t I ask God a question?

Stand with me daddy,
When I bore my son first born,
My life just unraveled,
It was darkest before dawn.

Stand with me daddy,
And see the person I am today,
I’m sure as you look down and see,
You will be proud to have a daughter like me.
