Dad

It’s been 2 years already, without a glimpse you in sight.
Tears still roll down, each and every night.
Some think that we have already moved on.
But they don’t know how we keep wishing that you had never gone.

Picturing you walking about ,as you dwell with God above.
Full of tears yet smiling down on us with an immense amount of love. 
God indeed does take away the best first.
How we all wish that the situation could have been reversed.

You were the glue that held us together when things fell apart.
The one many would turn to, as you were there from the start.
A loving brother, son, husband, friend and father.
You were and still are loved by all like no other.

All the memories with you, keeps you alive in our hearts. 
Years may come and go, but held within, those memories will never part. 
Reminiscing with the family and recalling the advice you use to give. 
All those moments spent with you, we wish we could relive.

We know you are watching over us, each and every day.
As we can feel your presence at our side, each time we turn to pray.
Apart of us went with you as we now feel incomplete
We know though that you are now pain free and someday we will again meet.

We love and really miss you more than the tears that we shed.
You were our pillar of strength and the one who always cared
Now you are guiding and protecting over us all together with God up above.
And until we see you again dad, everyone here sends all their love.
