For Our Dad!
The greatest things you gave us were not found in a store-
They were the things you could never pay for.
You gave us hope, compassion and love-
Things some kids can only dream of,
you gave us courage far stronger then we ever knew
so when we had to let go of you,
and let you pass to a better place,
we some how managed to cope,
By remembering your gift of hope,
we hope you are now safe, watching over us all down here,
And if we may, we have one last thing to do-
we want you to know how special it is to us being a part of you
Because now, we know its OK to be us.
For you were the greatest man we knew-
And we are a part of you!
So please never forget your girls,
The fun things we did, and the great times we had.
Because we will remember it all too-
Because your our dad- and we love you dad!!!
