It’s been five years since you disappeared,
Stole my heart, took my tears.
You left our lives that Father’s Day,
Closed your eyes and flew away.
I felt the breath get knocked from me,
Felt the pain intolerably.
I never thought I’d laugh again,
Breath, feel, or live again.
But something happened over time,
It’s still not perfect, still not fine.
While the red of hurt is now shades of gray,
How wish you could have stayed.
I know you’re somewhere looking down,
Or up or sideways, oh heck, you’re just AROUND!
‘Cause I don’t know where heaven exists,
But know this Dad, you’re so DAMN missed.
So whether in heaven or here on earth,
Not much rhymes with earth, but birth.
Which makes some sense because I do believe.
Though you’ve gone, you don’t truly leave.
Happy Father’s Day from Your Ever Lovin’ Daughter
