Years have come and gone and time has surely drifted by.
I’ve searched for any answer, yet I’m left to wonder why.
The only thing I know for sure, through the happy and the sad.
No matter what the circumstance, I will always be your dad.
Not a day goes by that I don’t hold you in my heart.
My love reaches far beyond this space we are apart.
These empty arms remember all the good times that we had.
I may be standing here alone, but I will always be your dad.
Some won’t understand, so I don’t bother to explain.
They look into my eyes, but they can only see the pain.
Afraid to look too deep as they are blinded by the fear,
If only they could know, a father’s love won’t disappear.
So when this road gets lonely and the journey seems too hard,
And I get to feeling sorry that I didn’t get a card.
If I close my eyes I can almost hear you say.
“I love you and I miss you, daddy….Happy Fathers Day.”

Your poem indeed touched my heart. Only those of us that are in this club, understand the depth of the loss. I lost my dear Jamie on August 24th, 2014. I miss him every single day and would give anything for just one more hug. One more time when we laughed so hard together and one more “I love you Mama”
