Father’s Day

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.”
