Dear Dad on Fathers Day

Dad, 


I thought of you today, but that is nothing new


I thought about you yesterday and the days before that too. 


I think of you in silence, wishing you were here.


But all I have is memories and a photo in a frame. 


Your memory is a keepsake from which I'll never part.


God has you in his arms, I have you in my heart.


Missing you so much on Father's Day and every other day. 


I know you're watching over me, I look out for the signs. 


The dragonfly that comes inside the house


The bird that sits by the window looking like it's waiting to come in


The smell of a cigarette that is not really there


And so many other things


I long to see you just one more time


And show you how my children have grown 


I wish they could have met you


Wonderful man x x x x
