I’ll Always Be Your Dad

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
