Today is my birthday I woke up wanting to write this to my dad

I often find myself missing you Dad so very much. The sadness still comes along but the joy in the memories are so dear that it gently pushes aside the sadness.
I had to accept the reality that I would never be the same person,
that some part of my heart, perhaps the best part,
had been cut out and buried with my dad
What I'd give if I could say
Hello, Dad, in the same old way
to hear your voice and see your smile
to sit with you and chat a while.
If we had all the world to give
we'd give it, yes, and more...
To hear your voice, see your smile
and greet you at the door.
But all I can do dear dad
Is go and tend your grave

Every time that I smile,
Every time that I sigh,
I think of your face,
And a tear escapes my eye
You were my world,
My inspiration and my heart,
But when you left me,
I thought I would fall apart.
I didn't want to live without you,
But you would have wanted me to,
And if there's anyone I want to make happy,
That anyone is you
I would have given anything to have you back,
But I know now that it was meant to be,
For you are still watching from up there,
And I know you're watching me.
So as you sleep dad in the cradle of the Lord,
I am reassured of God's promises in His Holy Word.
I dream of the day when Heaven's gates open to receive me
and with your smiling face and loving eyes, reunited once again we will be
Love grace

Dad , I know you're watching
I know your looking down
Your birthday is today
And although you're not around
It doesn't stop my thoughts
And never stops my prayers
I am sending birthday wishes

I thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday.
And the days before that too.

Now all I have is memories
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake.
With which I never part.
God has you in his keeping.
I have you in my heart.

Sadly, my Dad has passed away,
But there is something I have to say,
Today for many is a Special day,
So, God Bless you Dad on Father Day.
I know you'll be at home with us,
And you will be saying "don't make a fuss”,
But we miss you so, on days like this,
So I'm sending a massive kiss.
Many people think it is silly,
Some think it's mad,
But today is a Special one,
Happy Fathers Day, Dad!!!

Dear lord, I lost my father,
One year 5 months ago
I'm still hurting inside,
Like he would only know.

We have our personal memories,
Which we will never share,
Because that cherished moment,
Came with lots of loving care

He knows that I love him still,
And I still really care.
But I cannot tell him anymore,
Cause he is not there in his chair.

So lord, please take care of him,
He was the only one I had.
It is on days like Fathers Day,

I really miss, MY DAD
