Another year has passed that you have been gone
Oh how I wish that I could turn back time;
But God knew that it was time for you to go home
It was on God's agenda and not mine.
When I was young and growing up
You and I would disagree on things now and then;
But long gone are the days that I can call you on the phone
And say to you, "Dad do you remember when?"
As I now have children and grandchildren of my own,
I know now know how proud you must have been;
As the generations continue to come and go
Your love for all of us is instilled within.
It was with mixed emotion that I had to let you go
But I knew that you didn't want to stay;
You were headed home to Jesus to live forever
And that when you drew you last breath you were on your way.
There is not one day that goes by
That I don't miss you DAD,
But I know that you are with Jesus
And nothing more makes me more glad.
Miss you DAD
I lost my dad nearly 20 years ago. As a parent myself, all I would want for my child when I die is that he continues in the vein I have taught him. To embrace life and accept reality. Go on...
Miss You Dad
