I Miss You


many years had passed

yet thoughts of you linger

your memories, so clear

I can hold you clear.

I miss you, I know for sure!

many years had passed…

the scent of you lingers,

running through the air,

I can kiss you near.

I miss you, I know for sure!

many years had passed…

your soft cuddly touch embraces,

creeping through my being,

I can get closer even a thing.

I miss you, I know for sure!

many years had passed…

hearing your sweet voice,

sincerely saying, “I love you, baby”,

I can say ” I love you too, just stay”.

I miss you, I know for sure!

Three years had passed

leaving me by surprise,

I was hurt, I was broken,

I can cry, I can scorn.

I miss you, I know for sure!

many years had passed…

on this day in a mass,

I spoke to say goodbye,

a daughter’s eulogy, and lullaby.

I miss you DAD, I know for sure!!




It’s been three years dad, and I am still missing you. I hope you’re happy up there…Oh by the way.Happy Birthday too!!
