February 27, 2021 would be by dadís 63rd birthday. September 14, 2021 will be 8 years since he passed. I miss him more and more each day!

Dear Daddy

The day you left broke my heart
I never wanted us to be apart
After seven and a half years
Iím still here shedding tears
Wishing I had another day with you
Missing your advice on what to do
No one knows me the way you did
Thereís no doubt that Iím your kid
I just want to hear your voice
Leaving me was not your choice
Trying to live each day without you here
Is often more than I can bare
Your memory is what gets me through the day
There really is no other way
To see you again I canít wait
Living without you I really hate
I love you more than youíll ever know
Missing you more than I care to show
Soon enough I will again be by your side
I know youíll greet me with your arms opened wide
