Daddy, I Wish

Daddy, I wish…
I were more like you
That the things I do
And the things I say
Would show the world
A better way

Daddy, I wish…
I could see like you
With vision true
That the things I see
Would be the good
Start with me

Daddy, I wish…
I could speak like you
Speak loud and true
A gentle word
And hateful things
Not be heard

Daddy, I wish…
I could like you live
And could like you give
To the ones I meet
Along the way
Beside the street

Daddy, I wish…
I could with a touch
Convey as much
And share a hug
Or like your hand
Give a quiet tug

Daddy, I wish…
It didn’t seem so late
For I didn’t have to wait
For it seems so wrong
Saying these things
Took so long

Daddy, I wish…
I were more like you
With a life more true
So my sons can say
“My dad showed me
A better way”
