I know it’s your day Dad and I fancy that you are here 

Although on a wooden bed for a few seasons , you lay…

Your presence encourages; brings to memory and acute remembrance your words and sweet essence

But papa, the Heavenly Father made promises, some  of which you taught. me, instilled in me

And I bring you some of it today as a gift of Hope and life 

I kneel for you before Him, I stand for you as a prince for His King…

I praise with you, I speak the words you would have to me 

I know our Help is nigh and here

I love you pa!
