My Dads favorite song
Forget your grief and fears,
For I am in a perfect place,
Away from pain and tears.
I'm far away from hunger
And hurt and want and pride,
I have a place in Heaven
With the Master at my side
My life on earth was very good,
As earthly lives can go,
But Paradise is so much more
Than anyone can know.
My heart is filled with happiness
And sweet rejoicing, too.
To walk with God is perfect peace,
A joy forever new
"I Love You, Dad"
So often it may seem as if I have
taken you for granted, that I never
noticed all that you did for me or the
sacrifices you made for my benefit.
But I did notice.
I may not have said anything at the
time, and I am sure that many times I
really didn't appreciate you.
But now that I have grown up,
I realize that everything you did
was because you loved me
and wanted the best for me.
I can see now that doing so much for me
meant giving up a lot for yourself.
As I look around, I see many parents who
take care of themselves first and their children second.
In the eyes of those children,
I can see a hurt that I never knew.
You have given me more than I ever deserved.
At a time when so many people are
blaming their parents for what is wrong with them,
I want to thank you for all that is good in me.
You instilled it in me with each hug, scolding,
understanding word, punishment,
and "I love you."
I just wanted to tell you that I am forever grateful,
and I love you very much.
