Wishing You Were Here

Wishing you were here

It’s been so long since I have heard your voice
So deep and commanding
So strong and comforting
I would give anything for one more conversation

We could talk about life, love, misfortune
Even a scolding, if that were the only choice I had

If I never told you, you were more than my Dad
You were my first love, my protector, my GPS, my conscious and above all, my hero
I believed you could do anything
Loving me through rough times, was an amazing feat, but you did it

Thanks to you, I learned the true meaning of unconditional
Hopefully I have passed some of your wisdom along to my own brood
Who have tested me, as I tested you

Times have changed, but basics have not
I’m sure you are keeping tabs on us all 
Guiding us from afar, leading us gently
I am grateful and patiently waiting for another memorable bear hug 

Stay close, keep watch, I still need you and always will
I will love you for the rest of my life
