His Name Is Jack

Once there was a name I knew, I held it in my heart.
JACK
Once there was a hero I imagined, but only his name I knew.
Jack
Once there was a word I loved,and it was
Jack
All my dreams, all my fairy tales, and even stories revolved around one name.
Jack
My mind kept him real, my heart loved him so
Jack
Then there was a name I hated, it too was
Jack
A man I wanted to hurt, his name was
Jack
A hero I never knew
Jack
Once I found a man, his name was
Daddy
Once I loved a part of myself, I called him daddy
Once I learned how to love, and be loved, all because of
Daddy
One day I made the choice all for
Daddy
I made the plans, I choose the place and I buried my daddy,
Jack

For my daddy Jan 19, 1954-August 26, 2001
Daddy you were my light, my hero-myself and my love
my every dream come true.
