Dad I Miss You
You often said that we would miss you,
How those words have proved you true.
We lost the one and only Dad,
Dear Dad, when we lost you.
If we had all the world to give
We’d give it, yes, and more…
To hear his voice, see his smile
And greet him at the door.
But all we can do dear father
Is go and tend your grave
And leave behind tokens of love
To the best Dad God made.
Dad is such a special word
A word that brings to mind
A big warm smile, a helping hand
A way of being kind.
Devotion to the family
A word of patience too
“Dad” is such a special word
Because it stands for “You”.
It’s so strange that those in need
And those we love the best
Are just the ones God called away
And took them home to rest
But every time I think of Dad
I seem to hear God say:
“Have faith and trust my Promise”
You’ll meet again someday.
What we’d give if we 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.
So if you have a father
Cherish him with care
For you’ll never know the heartache
Till you see his vacant chair.
You held my hand when I was small,
You caught me when I fell.
The hero of my childhood,
And of latter years as well.
Every time I think of you,
Me heart just fills with pride,
And though I’ll always miss you Dad,
I know you’re by my side.
In laughter and in sorrow,
In sunshine and in rain,
I know you’re watching over me,
Until we meet again.
Memories of Dad
I will take this special moment
To turn my thoughts to Dad
Thank him for the home he gave
For all the things we had.
We think about the fleeting years
Too quickly, gone for good
It seems like only yesterday
I’d go back if I could.
A time when Dad was always there,
No matter what the weather.
Always strong when things went wrong
He held our lives together.
He strived so hard from day to day
And never once complained.
With steady hands, he worked so hard
And kept the family name.
He taught us that hard work pays off,
You reap just what you sow.
He said that if you tend your crops,
Your field will overflow.
My life has been bountiful
He taught me how to give
In his firm and steadfast way
He taught me how to live.
Dad dwells among the angels now
He left us much too soon
He glides across a golden field
Above the harvest moon.
I see him in the summer rain,
He rides upon the wind
And when my path is beaten down
He picks me up again.
Dad is gone but not forgotten
And, as dawns another year
In lonely hours of thinking
Thoughts of him are always near.
Many think the wound is healed
But little do they know of the sorrow
That lies in the heart concealed.
Please. God, forgive a silent tear
A fervent wish our Dad was here
There are others, yes we know
But he was ours and we loved him so.
Dear God, please take a message
To our Father in Heaven above
Tell him how much we miss him
And give him all our love.
Dear Father, You are not forgotten
Though on earth you are no more
Still in memory you are with us
As you always were before.
In our hearts your memory lingers
Sweetly tender, fond and true
There is not a day dear Father
That we do not think of You.
Your smile has gone forever
And your hand we cannot touch
We have so many memories
Of you, Dad, we loved so much.
An understanding heart
An intelligent mind
We miss you Dad
You were one of a kind.
God Knows how much I miss him
My heart cannot tell what to say
God alone knows how I miss him
In a home that is lonesome today.
His charming ways and smiling face,
Are a pleasure to recall
He had a kindly word for each
And died beloved to all.
A part of me he took with him
But his love he left me to keep
So we will never really be parted
The bond between us is too deep.
Looking back with memories
Upon the path you trod
We bless the hours we had with you
And leave the rest with God.
We lost a father with a heart of gold
How much we miss him can never be told
He shared our troubles & helped us along
If we follow his footsteps, we will never go wrong.
What would I give to clasp his hand,
His happy face to see,
To hear his voice, and see his smile
That meant so much to me.
The rolling stream of life rolls on.
But still the vacant chair
Recalls the love, the voice, the smile
Of the one who once sat there.
Nothing can ever take away
The love a heart holds dear.
Fond memories linger every day,
Remembrance keeps him near.
He had a nature you could not help loving,
And a heart that was purer than gold,
And to those who knew him and loved him
His memory will never grow cold.
More and more each day we miss him
Friends may think the wound is healed
But they little know the sorrow
Lying within our hearts concealed
You’re not forgotten, Father dear
Nor ever shall you be
As long as life and memory last
I shall remember thee.
His memory is as dear today
As in the hour he passed away.
The blow was great, the shock severe
We little thought his death so near
Only those that have lost can tell
The sorrow of parting without farewell
We often think of days gone by
When we were all together.
A shadow o’er our lives is cast,
Our loved one gone forever.
And have you gone, forever gone
And left us here to weep
Till we are called to follow you,
And in the grave to sleep.
Yet since you could no longer stay
To cheer us with your love,
We hope to meet you again in
The bright world above.
One precious to our hearts has gone,
The voice we loved is stilled;
The place made vacant in our home
Can never more be filled.
Our Father in His wisdom called
The one His love had given,
And so on earth the body lays
His soul is safe in Heaven.
No one knows how much I miss you,
No one knows the bitter pain
I have suffered; since I lost you
Life has never been the same.
In my heart your memory lingers,
Sweetly tender, fond and true;
There is not a day, dear Father,
That I do not think of you.
We think of him in silence,
No eyes can see us weep;
But still within our aching hearts,
His memory we keep.
Silent is the voice we loved to hear;
Too far away for sight or speech,
But not too far for thought to reach.
Sweet to remember him who once was here,
And who, though absent, is just as dear.
A beautiful memory, dearer than gold,
Of a Dad whose worth can never be told,
There’s a place in my heart no one can fill,
I miss you, Dad, and always will.
I never ask for miracles,
But today just one would do,
To see the front door open and
See our Dad walk through.
We miss his smile, his kindly ways,
With him we spent some happy days;
We’ll miss him when we need a friend,
On him we always could depend.
If only he were here today
Then this to him we could say,
God bless you, Dad, on your birthday.
His nature was loving and giving,
His heart was made of pure gold,
And to us who truly love him,
His memory will never grow old.
I have lost. Heaven has gained,
The most wonderful Dad this world contained,
There’s just one thing makes me glad,
God chose you to be my Dad.
The last time I saw you,
You looked so bright and well,
Little did I know, Dad,
It was our last farewell.
Heavenly Father, hear my prayer,
Guide my Dad with tender care,
Love him in heaven as I did at home,
The dearest father this world could hold.
In dreams I see your smiling face,
And kiss your tender brow,
I then awake and realize,
I have no father now.
Remembering you is easy Dad,
I do it every day,
And missing you is something
That will never go away.
I wish that I could see you Dad,
For just a little while,
I wish that I could hug you and
see your lovely smile,
But wishing gets me nowhere,
And longing is in vain.
So I will hold you in my heart.
Until we meet again.
Thinking of you Dad,
but that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday,
and the day before that too,
I’ll think about you tomorrow,
and as the years come and go
I’ll think about you forever,
because I loved you so.
You’ve earned your place in heaven Dad,
After all that you’ve been through
I wish I could have helped you
But there was nothing I could do
Peacefully sleeping now out of pain.
I would not wake you up to suffer again.
Fond memories Dad, through the mists of time
It seems so long, since last we met
But happy times are remembered yet.
There’s a bridge of happy memories
From here to heaven above
I know we share that bridge Dad
It’s called the Bridge of Love.
Dear Lord up above, give Grandad our love
Hug him and kiss him and tell him we love
Him and that we are always thinking of him.
