"My Fathers which art in heaven,"
Is a prayer I want to share,
Since my Dad has gone to Heaven,
I have two Fathers now up there.
The Lord knew my Dad was hurting,
With so much anguish and distress,
That it was time to bring him home,
And grant him endless painlessness.
Oh, dear Daddy, how I miss you,
I did not want for you to die,
Though I know you're better off now,
Still ... in selfishness ... I cry.
You were such a good Dad to me,
I loved you more than you could know,
I was so proud you were my Dad,
Although I never told you so.
So many words I should have said,
I took for granted that you knew
How very much that you were loved,
How very much I thought of you.
The one thing that consoles me some,
And helps me not to feel so bad,
Is one day we will meet above,
When I can say, "I LOVE YOU, DAD!"
"My Fathers which art in heaven,
Please take care of one another,
Dad, please praise God; God, please bless Dad,
I love you both." Your daughter.
