"missing dad Christmas time 2014,xxx
    my dear dad you held my hand when i was small, you caught me when I fell, you're the hero of my childhood and my later years as well, and every time I think of you my heart still fills with pride, though ill always miss you dad I know deep down inside your there with me right by my side, in laughter and in sorrow and in sunshine and rain until the beautiful day when we meet again,xxx

   remembering the happiness and the feelings of good cheer
when we celebrate Christmas in the days when you were here,
for at special times like this one almost everything we do  seems to bring back precious memories of those moments spent with you,
but dad your smile lives on  forever and your voice we often hear and on Christmas day .as always i will shed a private tear,
and ill think of all those good times and the special bond we had
for i never will forget you my devoted and dearest dad,xxxmy

                             my dear dad in heaven

                     a loving heart, a secret thought
                               a silent little tear
                     are all the things that keep you close
                          when Christmas time is here.

                      for you were someone special.dad
                                 one of the very best
                      the pain and grief was hard to bear
                            when you were laid to rest
                               are bond was sadly broken
                                 and for now we are apart
                              but time, they can help to heal
                                   this ever grieving heart
                       Christmas thoughts are bitter sweet
