Dear Dad on Fathers Day


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 


  1. Beautiful, Lucy, a really lovely tribute. This is my first Father's Day without Dad and feel such a weight of sadness. Big hug x
