MY DAD WAS A GEM

Love leaves a memory no one can steal, but Death leaves a heartache no one can heal.

I don't know where to begin, all I keep thinking is how I wish I had that "one more" opportunity to see you daddy, to hear your voice and to see you smile.

if only you could see the tears in the world you left behind.
if only you could heal our heart just one more time.
Even when we close our eyes, there is an image of your face. Dad, you are a loss that nothing can replace.

I try not to wonder why you left us now; when you are about to reap the fruits of your years of labor, things were getting better. Dad why? Why did u do this to us?

I stand with tears in my heart, but the lord conforts me with thoughts of the life you have lived on earth. A life worthy of copy. I am consoled with the thoughts of you in heaven, singing halelluyah with the angels.

I love you dad, you were my hero, I want you to know that. The legacy you left us is what made me what i am today, and i promise to keep that legacy alive till my days elapse on earth. I miss you much, but God knows better. I will forever keep missing you. ADIEU DADDY, rest well till we meet to part no more.
