In My Daddy's Arms

Heartbreak’s pain is like no other
An agony of sorrow cutting its way into the soul
Seeking a place of refuge where the worlds’ weight
Could for a moment be taken off my shoulder’s
I ran to the comfort of my daddy’s arms

Wrapped in his strength embraced by his love
For just a breath I was once again his little girl
Tear stained face buried in his shoulder
I cried out all the anguish within me
His calming presence with words of encouragement
Soothed my spirit engulfed in its distress

Heartache now has consumed me
My precious daddy heard heaven’s call
With his passing I can no longer run to him
But I know I will have the courage to go on
Because of the time I spent in my daddy’s arms
