Wish You Were Here With Me

Updated on January 8, 2017
I Love You Dad
I Love You Dad | Source

Whenever I fell you picked me up

Dusted me off and hugged me tight

Wiped my tears and made me laugh

Got me going on upright.

You were there for me

Always by my side, as my friend

My philosopher and my guide

You blew all my troubles away,

Taught me to laugh and,

Showed me the way

Now I’m here and I am fine

Still going on, with you in my mind

Thinking of you every time

Longing to hug you just one more time

Time and fate had to have their way

Snatch you from me, tear you away

Now you are up there in heaven above

But I still feel all the warmth and love

Dear daddy

I wish you were here with me

Now
