Father's Day can be just another cruel reminder of my loss.
Father's Day is a joyous occasion and a chance to celebrate dads for their hard work and loving nature. But for those of us whose fathers have died, this holiday is far from festive.
And I do not need a special day to bring you to my mind dad.
The days I do not think of you are very hard to find.
Each morning when I awake I know that you are gone.
And no one knows the heartache as I try to carry on.
My thoughts are always with you, your place no one can fill.
In life I loved you dearly; in death I love you still.
There will always to be a heartache, and often a silent tear.
But always a precious memory of the days when you were here.
If tears would make a staircase, and heartaches make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven and bring you home again.
I'd hold you close within my heart; and there you will remain,
to walk with me throughout my life until we meet again.
Our family chain is broken now, and nothing seems the same,
but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
Happy Father's Day Dad!!!!
