I remember daddy's hands, working till they blead, sacrificed unselfishly just to keep us all fed. I remember daddy's hands, how they held my mama tight, and how they patted my back for something done right. You could read quite a story in those calluses and lines, years of work and worry had left there mark behind.
Always his favorite song, and there is some truth in it still, it was my pleasure to sing it to you dad, my way of measure of good will. Daddy's hands weren't always gentle, nor motives always pure, but my prayers for you dad always were. This I prayed until THE day, that you would find the living rest only God can give, now this prayer I pray in hope for those that yet still live. It is my hope that you found that peace so long missing from those hands, may we all keep to remember there is always love in Daddy's Hands.
