Tribute To Dad

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.

    So well expressed... an excellent tribute to your dad. I can see clearly how much he meant to you and it shows through your writing. Mine was always such a goofball. When talking to me I can't really ever remember him being in a foul mood. All my weird sarcasm comes from him...

    First, I must thank you for your visits! You always have a kind word to say! This a very heartfelt tribute to your dad which I'm sure is echoed through many families. My dad was away ahead of his time in his beliefs and now finally some of his predictions have come to fruition! He was quite a man! Hugs, Jack xoxox
