Dearest Daddy

Updated on August 6, 2012

To my dearest daddy I write this letter

I wish you were still here

That you could have stayed a little longer

That I could have known you better


To have had you close all these years

Through life’s troubling times

Would have made things much easier

I would have cried fewer tears


Dearest daddy, you have missed many a thing

You would have known your grandchildren

And all the great-grands too

You would have heard The Eagles sing


I love you like no other

And I know you had to go

It was His plan after all

And you’re with my dearest mother


Dearest daddy, I’ll see you again

Some day I’ll hold your hand

And kiss Mama on her cheek

Someday, but I don’t know when

      A beautiful tribute to your dad. My dad passed away when I was 29. I treasure his stories and time with me. I write about him, some are on m hubpage. I see you have many interesting hubs. Glad to have found your page. Your dad has a Johnny Cash expression.

      So touching. I am reminded of my own parents who have passed on. One day we will be together again.

      So sad when we lose a parent. Both of mine are gone, too. This was a wonderful tribute to your father. Voted up.

      I'm sure she was watching your wedding! I believe strongly that those things happen. Thanks for reading.

      A beautiful tribute that can make anyone wonder how short is our life and still how can we live it to the fullest.

      2 years ago my beloved grandma passed away and meanwhile I was reading these lines she came to my mind again: she could not see my wedding personally 2 weeks ago, but still, I hope she could have seen it somehow.
