21 years ago exactly on that day
I got the news off horror
that threw me off my way.
My Dad was in an accident
he wasn’t doing well
he needed some heart surgery
a bad night, that much I could tell.
Late that night I made a call
Only to hear the worst
I hardly could believe my ears
had problems with that first.
But I got confirmation
that it really has been true
my Daddy’s heart had given up
despair, it washed me through!
The greatest Dad, he was no more
his smiles are with him gone.
But still sometimes I see his face
At sunset, at full moon and dawn.
I’ll never forget what you have taught
us then, us kids and too your wife,
the lessons you gave all of us,
we needed for our life.
Never will I leave the house
no day will ever start
without a smile and a thought to you
who will always be in my heart!
THANK YOU DAD!!
