"FOREVER AND A DAY"
I know it had to have hurt you
to see Mah and us kids around your bed,
just knowing that it wont be long
had to have torn at your heart and head.
I can't begin to imagine what you felt
or the thought that went through your mind,
as we talked and cried and said our good byes
knowing that we'd all be left behind.
You were here for so long,
I prayed you would never leave.
I though you had a few more years
hiding up your sleeve.
The dreadfully day that you left
was the saddest day of my life,
we were there touching some part of you
while you crossed over in the arms of your wife.
I know It may sound selfish
but I wish that you were still here,
or maybe if you could have stayed
for just another year.
I know how much you loved me
and you know how much I loved you,
I'm trying hard to be strong Dad
because that's what you'd want me to do.
I know you had to let go
even though you held on for so long,
there's not a day I don't think of you
And how you were so strong.
I just want to tell you Dad
that you're always in my heart,
even though 4 years have gone by
I know that we're never apart.
I know I'll see you again one day
and until then remember this:
I love and miss you forever and a day,
and I seal it with a kiss.
I love you Dad, forever and a day
