Daddy's Footsteps
by Paula Scott

When I was small
The happiest times that
I recall
Was not when playing with my toy's
'Nor thing's that bring other
kids joy
It wasn't playing with my pets
But trying to follow in
"Daddy's footsteps"

He always kept a steady pace
Yet for me it was like a
foot race
And though he was never out of sight
He kept a look back to make sure
I was alright
He seemed to have a smile on his face
As if he were proud I'd joined in
his race

As time went by and my legs grew strong
It seemed I didn't have to walk
behind
Patience was the one thing I didn't
try
To walk with Daddy by his side

But now those times are all gone
My task in life has been done
And as I look back to see him there
I know the love he must have felt
'Cause now Daddy's slowly walking in
"My footsteps".
