From A Daughter To A Daddy - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

I don't cry at night
for now I know
I will see you again
when it gets light

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The best thing I ever did was stopping smoking.
With getting laid off from work I could not see
any way of stopping until I found these guys.
Gamucci Ecigs look them up if you want to
cut the cigs. They may just save my life.

    Lovely poem. I stopped smoking when cigs went up to £1. I started when they were 2/- of 20 (about 1960) . (Report) Reply

    Pleased to hear your still off the dreaded weed Dave so well done.
    I only smoke when I have a drink so only at weekends, but I should knock it on the head as it's a nasty habit.
    Like your poem by the way! (Report) Reply
