Thinking about you every day and keep wishing you were still here.
Even though you had suffered a lot you still kept strong for many years.
There’s a feeling of emptiness that’s now inside of me.
i keep wishing when I get home it will be you that I see.
I can feel your presence next to me each time I turn to pray.
And keep wishing that it’s just a dream each and every day
feels like I’m even closer to you now than I was before.
And that makes it hard each day as I start to miss you even more.
I miss the times you use to scold me, when I was sometimes wrong.
And all the advice you use to give, that kept me going strong.
I miss your smiles and your laughter and even our little fights.
I miss hearing your voice every day and every night.
I miss the days you would come home and spoil me with many treats.
Chocolates, toys, cakes and a variety of sweets.
I remember days when I was young, you would always hug me tight
Making any dark day seem once again so bright.
At times you would put on your shoulders that were big and strong.
I felt on top of the world and believed that nothing could go wrong.
I remember weekends that mum worked, you use to take care of me,
Never left me from your sight and made sure I was always happy.
All those are now just treasured memories that will forever be with me.
And every time I think of you, it’s those memories that I see.
Life is now incomplete without you at my side.
And at every special occasion, there will always be that void.
I know there are times I did do wrong that made you disappointed in me.
I can only hope that today, Dad, you’re as proud as you can be.
I wish that I could see you and spend more time with you again
Your arms wrapped around me, will take away this pain.
I will always love you Dad, and no one can ever take your place.
Years may come and go, but your memory will never be erased.
I really miss you so much Dad and even though I can’t see you.
I know you’re still guiding and protecting over me, like you always use to do.
