I have decided to add a letter to my Dad in my program, but once I sat down to write it (yesterday was the 4- year anniversary of his death so it was the perfect time to bring up the feelings to write it), I ended up with a poem.
Can you please tell me what you think of it? Any comments will be appreciated.
As days go by I miss you more, a part of my heart still breaks
I want you to walk through the door and show me it was a mistake
I need you here now more than ever to do what you do best
To be my Daddy on this special day, to help me pass this test.
But into the new chapter of life I go of which you are not a part
When you left me four years ago you took a piece of my heart
It’s especially hard right now that you are not around
I don’t have you here to comfort me or to keep me safe and sound.
I will not see your shining face, I will not see your smile
I will not feel your warm embrace when you walk me down the aisle.
Then I look up to the beautiful sky, up to the Heavens from below
And take God in with one big sigh, and realize he wouldn’t do me so.
For I am blessed here after all, I know you will walk me down that aisle
You’ve been there every step of the way, every eventful mile.
For all the things that He has taught me, who am I to assume thus far
That God would not keep you in my path to be there for me as you always are.
Just as you are here with me through the ups and downs life brings
You’ll help me seal my fate today, you are giving me my wings.
As our moment comes to an end, you’ll look me in my eyes
When it’s time to say goodbye you take me by surprise.
You’ll raise my hand above my head and spin me in a twirl
Forever in my heart I’ll be My Daddy’s little girl.
