I Miss You, on Father's Day

Fathers Day without my Father just doesn't seem right. Card shops with adverts in their windows, people rushing around buying presents, retailers telling us to get our Fathers Day presents here! Well I can't anymore. So instead, I just turn away and feel that sad hollow within me as my eyes well up yet again and I head off home. 
There's no one like My Dad, and he's not here to cuddle any more and tell me that I'm his best girl. He's not here to hold my hand and tell me it'll be all right. He's not here to celebrate Fathers Day with me, because he died. :'(

Nine months have passed
I’ll never forget the day
Mom rang to tell me
That you’d gone away

The hurt is the same
Like an open wound
There are days
I don’t utter a sound

Some days the pain is stronger
It makes me sick and weak
I can’t stand this much longer
I just sit here and weep

I’ve shut my private door
And let no one in
Locking myself in a box
They try, but I won’t give in

You were like a rock
Strong, faithful and true
What worth has my life
Now I don’t have you

I was your first born
Daddy’s little girl
I took my own path
But was still part of your world

I was not the best
Guilty of neglect
But you know daddy dearest
I had so much respect

I always loved you
My dad, my star
Now my pain is
To worship you from afar

I love you now
As I did back then
I just hope... one day
I will see you again

I am so proud of you
Brave and strong to the end
Now when asked “how are you?”
There is no need to pretend

We all love and miss you so much, sleep well
and take care of all who went before you

Forever in my heart!
