Missing You on Father’s Day

How can I celebrate when you are not here?

How will I get through this ‘special’ calendar day?

Others are laughing and smiling whilst spending the day together,

Meanwhile, you and I are apart, and it just isn’t right.


I look at our pictures and I think of your face,

My memory of it, thankfully, time cannot erase.

In the midst of my quiet, I listen for your voice…

“Remember me with love & all that we shared,

For I am with you now & forever in countless ways.”


Dedicated to all who have lost their dads, 
Be it days, weeks, months or even years ago.
