I Want You To Know, My Father
You saw me through some difficult years and watched me grow with the years.
You spoke of love and life and dreams and helped to ease my fears.
I want you to know, my Father, it's admiration and love in my tears.
Your passion for knowledge, connection to people, love of animals, adventure, and food.
Your desire to learn, to teach and help others, wherever and whenever you could.
You helped to inspire and form my life and I will miss you as I would.
But I want you to know, my Father, by example you taught me good.
I saw in your heart and body the fight and through that experience you gave me insight.
It was an honor holding your hand through the night, to dream your dreams and try to make it right.
I knew in my soul what we must do bring you home for your final flight.
But I want you to know, my Father, you are still my guiding light.
With Highland mist, heather, dewdrops kissed, gentle wind blowing through the valley.
I can see you now coming round the bend, eyes at peace, as your soul shall be.
My message to you, as I help you go, is I love you with all of me.
I want you to know my Father, in this place your soaring free.
Even though not spoken enough, I appreciate all you did do.
Gratitude is all I feel, for having a Father like you.
I hold in my heart your image so clear; it was a gift to see you through.
I want you to know my Father, in my heart you'll be - so true.
Nothing but love and light and peace - my wish for you this day.
I want you to know, my Father, this is what I pray.
