I Miss You Dad.

What do you do when all the pain won't go away?

Even though you're gone, I still have to stay.

As the days go by, I miss you more and more everyday.

I miss hearing all the funny things you used to say.

Time was well spent when you were here.

But I can't quit thinking of that smile from ear to ear.

I know if you were here right now things would be a lot better.

I wouldn't have to pretend like I was writing you a letter.

I know you are up in heaven having a blast.

So I should stop thinking about the past.

You know I won't see you at Graduation.

But I wish I could see your love and appreciation.

I know you will be watching down upon me.

Looking with that 'look' so happily.

I know I've had a couple of dreams.

But they were all so short it seemed.

I want to apologize for not being in your presence as much.

But trust me, I would take it all back just for your loving touch.

I just want you to know that you'll be in my heart forever.

So hopefully things will get better.

It's so hard to say Goodbye Dad, I wish this didn't have to be so sad.

I wish you could have had one more chance, so I could see that special glance.

I wasn't ready for you to go but God needed to use that special Halo.

I know this all happened in the past, but I have so many memories that will always Last!

I miss you so much! RIP Dad, I will be thinking of you ALWAYS!
