Poem

Daddy, your battle is now over; no more tears flowing down your cheek,

no more pain, no more suffering; now you are no longer weak.

I still do not understand why this had to happen to you,

I am more than proud to say you are my dad, the greatest man I ever knew.

Although you will not be here to walk me down the aisle,

when that day comes, I know you will be by my side with a smile.

You were always there for me, through my hospital stays, Walk and rolls, and even when I would cry.

You were there for me every day, until the day you closed your eyes and had to say goodbye.

Now you are my Angel, as you spread your wings out wide.

Please wrap them around me whenever you see me cry.

Our time together was I will cherish forever in my heart, and God took you way too fast,

But the most precious thing to me was you being there for my first breath

and me being there for you.

 

Prayer 

 

Lord, at times I come to You, my faith is not as strong.

But in your loving arms I fall; You show us that I belong.

You carry me when I think like right now without my dad, I can't go any longer.

The love You have can only grow stronger and stronger.

With You living in our daily lives as my dad taught me, You are the living God I praise.

Thank You for the goodness and showing me along our way.

At times I want to lay it all down to You, and at Your feet I fall.

You show my dad and I that there is a way and help us to give it our all.

You give me and my dad the faith to be stronger, even though we may not know.

The things that are not of You, You help us to let go.

You are my strength, my deliverer, the rock that makes me unbroken.

You lead my dad and I to be righteous with things we feel are all unspoken.

I pray for understanding because right now I don't understand, because sometimes like now I may stumble.

I look up to You for answers that my world may never crumble.

We know are thankful that You are here at this time at and You are here to carry us through it all.

You are there to pick my dad and my family up, even as we may fall.

Father, our ever loving God, we ask You for Your pardon,

For this day that my dad is with You, living in Your heavenly garden.

 Lord, I thank You for my dad and I cherish our many blessed filled days.

Keep our spirits calm and heal our broken hearts here on earth; we are grateful for an amazing Father above; Lord with You my dad and I will always be amazed.
