I LOVED DAD  IN MY OWN WAY
JUST DID'T SHOW IT DAY TO DAY
GOD WHY DID HE DIE?
WHY COULDN'T YOU OF JUST LET US BE?
TO MEND THE TIME THAT NOW CAN NEVER BE

NOT UNTIL THE VERY END…. DID I SEE MY DAD….
HOW TENDER AND LOVING THAT HE COULD BE.
SO SCARED AND ASHAMED HE OFTEN SAY,,,
OF HOW MUCH IT HURT, DEPENDING ON ME,
CLEANING AND CHANGING, BATHING AND FEEDING,
SOMETHING HE DID ONCE FOR ME WITHOUT EVER COMPLAINING

HE DIDN'T DESERVE TO DIE
OR DESERVE THE PAIN, IT DIDN'T MAKE SENSE AND DROVE ME INSANE
IT ONLY LEFT ME ASKING WHY

NIGHT AFTER NIGHT I'D CRY AND CRY, I STILL DON'T KNOW...
CAN YOU ANSWER THIS QUESTION AND TELL ME WHY?

BUT GOD SAID NO AND TOOK HIS SOUL AND NOW IN MINE IS AN EMPTY HOLE.
REGRET AND GUILT I HAVE INDEED…. THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WILL ALWAYS  LIVE IN
ME -
I PRAY OH GOD…… PLEASE FORGIVE….
FOR NOT BEING THE DAUGHTER… I KNEW I SHOULD BE.

A LIST OF MEMORIES I DON'T HAVE - OF HAPPY TIMES OF DAD AND ME

BUT NOW I KNOW MY DADS AT REST,
NO MORE PAIN THANKS BE TO GOD!
JUST HAPPY TIMES AND PEACEFUL NIGHTS, IN LOVING ARMS HE'LL SLEEP TONIGHT.
SO GO REST DAD WITH PEACEFUL HEART AND MIND AT EASE.
REMEMBER YOUR DAUGHTER THE OLDEST OF 3

CLOSING NOW I HAVE THIS CHANCE TO BREAK DOWN THAT WALL I ONCE HAD….TO
TELL YOU DAD... I LOVE YOU SO… AND IN MY HEART YOU'LL ALWAYS BE.
JUST PLEASE DEAR DAD REMEMBER ME…… FOR NOW IM RETURNING THE LOVE I
KNOW YOU HAD FOR ME
GOD WHY DID YOU TAKE MY DAD

SELFISH I KNOW AND GREEDY TOO.....
BUT I WANTED TO GET TO KNOW
THE DAD I NEVER KNEW
HE WAS THERE THROUGH OUT MY ADULTHOOD
AND  ADOLESCENCE TOO......
BUT NEVER COULD CONNECT THE WAY
I REALLY WANTED TOO.

THE LOVE WAS THERE…WITHOUT A DOUBT,
JUST NO WAY TO EXPRESS OR LET IT OUT.
WE FOUGHT AND ARGUED AS WE ALL DO,
BUT NEVER DOUBTED THE LOVE WAS TRUE.
I WANTED HUGS AND TENDER WORDS
BUT FOR SOME REASON …THEY WERE NOT HEARD.
