Missing Him

For years my life has felt empty
For years I cried out in pain
The pain of losing you
Was more than I could stand.

My best friend was gone
Never to be seen or heard again
Just a memory in my heart and mind
A memory I never want to forget.

Praying that will never happen
Because I had over 30 years with you
I know that's more than some others get
But it wasn't enough for me.

I never wanted to live life without you daddy
But here I am today...
Left loving and missing you
On this cold and miserable day.

I feel your presence watching over me
I feel you close and near
I will never ever forget
How much you loved and cared.

My dad is my guardian angel
One I hold dear to my heart
He's always there
So that I have nothing to fear.
