Daddy's Fingers

Although the title makes it sound completely disgusting, it's not. it's a poem/song that i wrote about my dad playing guitar lol.

Daddy’s fingers tell the story of a thousand hard days

And nothing else seems to matter as he plays

His strumming’s filled with the love

He can’t find the words to show

But this is much more clear, he loves me, I know

Daddy’s not a man of faith

But he believes in me

Daddy’s not a man of knowledge

But he’s taught me so much

Daddy doesn’t care if I make mistakes

But he sees perfection in every step I take

Daddy never told me to wish on a star

But Daddy finds home in his guitar

Daddy’s fingers tell the story of time that has passed

And I try not to grow up too fast

His strumming’s filled with memories that I could never see

But I can see in his fingers,

The history

Daddy’s not a man of faith

But he believes in me

Daddy’s not a man of knowledge

But he’s taught me so much

Daddy doesn’t care if I make mistakes

But he sees perfection in every step I take

Daddy never told me to wish on a star

But Daddy finds home in his guitar

Daddy never asked for much,

Either way he’s proud

Instead of telling me quiet, he’s always told me loud

Daddy never had a lot of money to be spent

But he said I could get whatever I want as long as I give 100 percent

Daddy’s not a man of faith

But he believes in me

Daddy’s not a man of knowledge

But he’s taught me so much

Daddy doesn’t care if I make mistakes

But he sees perfection in every step I take

Daddy never told me to wish on a star

But Daddy finds home in his guitar

Daddy was never ashamed

Daddy never thought it lame

to shoot for the stars

Or dream too big of dreams

He never saw the point

in lowering yourself to other people’s means

And Daddy was never the type to sit and watch the stars

But daddy always makes me feel home when he plays guitar
