Memorial verses for a Father
If we had all the world to give we'd give it, yes, and more... To hear his voice, see his smile and greet him at the door. But all we can do dear father is go and tend your grave and leave behind tokens of love to the best Dad God ever made.
It's so strange that those in need and those we love the best are just the ones God called away and took them home to rest. But every time I think of Dad I seem to hear God say:
"Have faith and trust my Promise" ...you'll meet again some day.
What we'd give if we could say hello Dad, in the same old way. To hear your voice and see your smile, to sit with you and chat a while. So if you have a father cherish him with care for you'll never know the heartache till you see his vacant chair.
Please. God, forgive a silent tear, a fervent wish our Dad was here. There are others, yes we know. But he was ours and we loved him so. Dear God please take a message to our Father in Heaven above. Tell him how much we miss him and give him all our love.
Your smile has gone forever and your hand we cannot touch. We have so many memories of you Dad... we loved so much.
As I journey toward life's sunset, mourning him who went before Faith assures me, I'll be with him when I reach the other shore.
We lost a father with a heart of gold, how much we miss him can never be told. He shared our troubles and helped us along If we follow his footsteps we will never go wrong.
I have lost my souls companion, a life linked with my own and day by day I miss him more as I walk through life alone.
