I Miss You Dad

I've been feeling blue and dreading this first Father's Day without him. A friend sent me this poem. Sorry, I have no idea who wrote it

YOU ARE MY FATHER

I will not look at this as goodbye

I will not allow the sorrow of losing you to destroy me

I will embrace what you have taught me through

the years and carry that with me.

You will forever be a part of my life,

and through me you will forever be a part of your

grandhchildren's lives as well. We are your legacy.

I am proud to have had you in my life.

You have raised me to the best of your ability

and for that I want to thank you.

Thank you for being kind, thank you for being stronger than

you know, and most of all, thank you for loving us.

You have inspired me too live life to the fullest,

and never back down.

I will not be taken over by the anger and

frustration of your loss.

Instead, I will remember the days when I was young

and you were my hero.

I will see you in my dreams.

There you will forever be healthy and strong.

Sorrow is inevitable, but I will face it with the same

courage you did, because you are my father.
