Almost Two Years: I miss you Daddy!!

I had this played at his funeral so, on Father's Day here it is again. I love you and miss you everyday, Daddy. Though I know you are here watching over us! You were my "backbone" I am still amazed that I am making it without you right here with me. You were loved more than I showed you, and what I wouldn't give for one more hug. You were and are a very special man (spirit) and I can't wait to see you again. Your little nickname sake will always know what a special man his Pop was.....

I remember daddy's hands folded silently in prayer
And reachin' out to hold me, when I had a nightmare
You could read quite a story in the callous' and lines
Years of work and worry had left their mark behind I remember daddy's hands how they held my mama tight
And patted my back for something done right
There are things that I'd forgotten that I loved about the man
But I'll always remember the love in daddy's hands Daddy's hands were soft and kind when I was cryin'
Daddy's hands were hard as steel when I'd done wrong
Daddy's hands weren't always gentle but I've come to understand
There was always love in daddy's hands. I remember daddy's hands workin' 'til they bled
Sacrifised unselfishly just to keep us all fed
If I could do things over, I'd live my life again
And never take for granted the love in daddy's hands

  1. I certainly know where you are coming from. I have sang that song for the past 8 months hoping that it will be what I need to hear to finally let go of my dad. Hard to believe that time goes by and it never gets easier.. Many hugs and much love to you
