Words that Haunt

Dad, it’s been eight years now
And still, I miss you so,
I remember the last words 
You said to me, I cannot let them go.

You were always moody
Especially when you were ill,Dad, it’s been eight years now
And still, I miss you so,
I remember the last words 
You said to me, I cannot let them go.

You were always moody
Especially when you were ill,
But those last words 
You shouted and haunt me still.

Dearest Daddy, every day 
I see your face, 
Even at ninety-three,
Only faint lines gave the look of lace.

I miss you so much, Dad
More than you’ll ever know,
Yet every day I hear your voice,
And the words, that hurt me so.

I know you didn’t mean to shout,
That you were afraid of dying,
But Dad, I couldn’t believe 
You were leaving, I couldn’t help, crying.

Living fifteen hundred miles away,
Life was difficult, filled with sorrow;
But remember this, my dearest Dad,
You’ll forever be my hero.

You shouted like you did in my youth,
A reminder of days gone by
I understand that moment of pain,
As only a daughter could sigh.

I’ll never forget you, Dad,
I cry myself to sleep,
The nights are so lonely,
And your haunting words, I keep.
But those last words 
You shouted and haunt me still.

Dearest Daddy, every day 
I see your face, 
Even at ninety-three,
Only faint lines gave the look of lace.

I miss you so much, Dad
More than you’ll ever know,
Yet every day I hear your voice,
And the words, hurt me so.

I know you didn’t mean to shout,
That you were afraid of dying,
But Dad, I couldn’t believe 
You were leaving, I couldn’t help, crying.

Living fifteen hundred miles away,
Life was difficult, filled with sorrow;
But remember this, my dearest Dad,
You’ll forever be my hero.

You shouted like you did in my youth,
A reminder of days gone by
I understand that moment of pain,
As only a daughter could sigh.

I’ll never forget you, Dad,
I cry myself to sleep,
The nights are so lonely,
And your haunting words, I keep.
