Dad .. so many images come to mind
whenever I speak your name ..
It seems without you in my life
things have never been the same.
What happened to those lazy days
when I was just a child ..
When my life was consumed in you
in your love, and in your smile.
What happened to all those times
when I always looked to you ..
No matter what happened in my life
you could make my gray skies blue.
Dad, some days I hear your voice
and turn to see your face ..
Yet in my turning…it seems
the sound has been erased.
Dad, who will I turn to for answers
when life does not make sense ..
Who will be there to hold me close
when the pieces just don’t fit.
Oh, Dad, if I could turn back time
and once more hear your voice ..
I’d tell you that out of all the dads
you would still be my choice.
Please always know I love you
and no one can take your place ..
Years may come and go
but your memory will never be erased.
Today, Jesus, as You are listening
in your home above ..
Would you go and find my dad
and give him all my love.

Daddy, I Will Never Forget You
(Father Daughter Poems)
I sit and look back to how far I can remember
And you are always there next to me –
Each and every day you were helping me grow up
And making me be the best that I can be.
Your love was forever strong
Your cuddles forever tight –
Every day since I was born
Your love was always in sight.
I will always be your Baby Girl
And you will always be my Dad –
I know I will always be the luckiest
To have the best Dad any girl could have had.
My Daddy, I love you with all my heart
Much more than I ever say –
You are my world, my everything
Each and Every day.
Tears In My Daddy’s Eyes
(Dad Father Poems)
He was always my pillar
when I knew I’d fall ..
Always my anchor
so strong and tall.
His hard face changes
only for me ..
His softer side
so careless and free.
He knows my dreams
are too big for this place ..
His little girl’s leaving
ready to begin her race.
He knows I’ll be thinking
of him wherever I go ..
I know I’m ready
to do this on my own.
But still I cry
and he holds me tight ..
He tries to be strong
not a tear in sight.
I’m ready to reach
for the stars in the sky ..
He’s ready to watch
his princess fly.
It’s time to let go
sure of a path to take ..
But now I know
even pillars can break.
For when I drive away
trying to stifle my cries ..
All I could see were
tears in my father’s eyes.
