Happy Father’s Day!

dad If flowers grow in Heaven, Lord

Pick a bunch for me.

Place them in my Dad's arms and tell him they're from me.

Tell him that I love and miss him, and when he turns to smile

Place a kiss upon his cheek and hold him for a while.

Because remembering him is easy;  I do it everyday

But there's an ache within my heart that will never go


Happy Father’s Day Dad, wherever you are.

I think this poem sums it up for me. I miss my dad dearly, and every father's day I wish I could give him one more card and one more bad tie.

A beautiful tribute to your father.

Oh Barbara, that is such a sweet poem and a beautiful tribute for your dad.

I'm late commenting on this but just wanted to say I've lost my dad, too, and a friend posted the same poem on Facebook...which of course I copied and pasted and others did, too. I hope sweet memories of your dad helped you yesterday, as I know mine did for me.

Yes, I didn't write the poem, I got it the same way you did Pam. However, it did sum up my feelings so I thought I'd post it here. Wish I did know who wrote it.
Oh shit! you went and made me cry.
