Missing You (Dad)

No words I write can ever say
How much I miss you everyday.
As time goes by, the loneliness grows;
How I miss you, nobody knows!
I think of you in silence,
I often speak your name
But,all I have are memories
And photos in a frame.
No one knows my sorrow,
No one sees my weep
But the love I have for you,
is in my heart to keep.
I’ve never stopped loving you; 
I’m sure I never will.
Deep inside my heart,
you are with me still.
Heartaches in this world are many
but mine is worse than any.
My heart still aches as I whisper low,
“I need you and I miss you so.”
The things we feel so deeply,
are often the hardest to say.
But, I just can’t keep quiet anymore,
so I’ll tell you anyway.
There is a place in my heart,
that no one else can fill,
I love you so Dad,
and I always will.

  1. Hey Ceez! I thought this was one of yours, until I read “Author Unknown”. 🙂

    Nonetheless, I can only imagine the pain of losing someone so dear as a dad. I’m glad that there are words that capture the sentiment and the heaviness that comes with it, but more importantly, I am happy that we can “gift” these words in one’s honor to commemorate one’s life, and the impact that s/he has on the survivors.

  2. Thank you Ermz and Somer for your kind remarks. Somehow, sometimes you just can’t put the words together to express what you feel. At such times, it is good to tap into the expressions of others. So, it is all wonderful.
    Keep being wonderful both of you.
    God bless

  3. This piece truly attempts to reflect the sense of loss you feel Ceez. Courage and strength. May your dad rest in peace with our most loving God.

    May God’s peace abide with you always!

    1. Thank you Padre!
      My father was a good friend to me, and since he left
      there has indeed been a great vacuum.
      But, God carries us even in the midst of the storm.
      God bless.
