Dear Dad

I need your encouragement.
I need your recognition.
I need your touch.
I need your love.

Just a word of encouragement,
Good job, That was great, I'm proud of you!

Just a glance in my direction,
A knowing look of recognition in your eyes.

Just some little physical connection,
Perhaps a touch on the shoulder or the elbow.

Just any small gesture,
To let me know that you are here for me.

I need to be encouraged.
I need to be recognized.
I need to be touched.
I need to be loved.
