When my daddy went to war,
every night I'd kneel on the floor.
I pray to God to keep him safe
and in my dreams to see his face.
In my dreams of Daddy,
we like to play fun games,
mostly climbing big, tall trees
and running through fields chasing bumblebees.
So keep safe my special daddy,
I will be cheering you on, by your side.
I cannot wait to run to you,
when you walk back into my life.
