"I know this man
Who is dear to my heart
Suddenly one day
It was torn all apart

This man taught me everything
That I needed to know
But I never really listened
Until he had to go

He gave me love
And touched my life
It's all over now
He no longer has to fight

He tried to teach me
Right for wrong
The day he left
I wasn't that strong

He is gone now
It is hard to believe
This man is my dad
Who I will never see

But I will see him again
This I know
The day will come
When it's time for me to go

So, I'll hold him dear
And close to my heart
Cause the day we meet
I know we'll never be torn apart.


MY DAD MY HERO"

"DEAR DAUGHTERS,
I stood by your bed last night; I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying you found it hard to sleep.
I spoke to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many things and memories of me.
I was with you at the shops today; your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.
I was with you at my grave today; you tend it with such care.
I want to re-assure you, that I'm not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my hand on you; I smiled and said, "it's me."
You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...
in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning
and say "good-night, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out...then come home to me.
DAD"

"My DAD
My father is a man like no other. He gave me life, nurtured me,
taught me, dressed me, fought for me, held me, kissed me, but most importantly he loved me unconditionally. There are not enough words I can say to describe just how important my father is to me, and what a powerful influence he continues to be.
I LOVE YOU DAD"

This tribute was added by Marian Kelly on 7th June 2016

"We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost half of how we came to be
We lost our Best Friend

We lost more than just a Dad that day
Our Mom lost her Soul Mate, Her other half
Our children lost their Granddad
We lost our family’s foundation
We lost the glue that held us together

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost the Strongest man we ever knew
We lost the man we looked up too
We lost we our Teacher of many things

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost our Hero
We lost some of our Light
We lost part of our Heart
We lost part of our Soul

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost some of our Courage
We lost some of our Strength
We lost some of our will to fight back
We lost some of our will to carry on
We lost more than just a Dad that day"

"It hurts to think that you are not here anymore. Although I can’t help but smile with tears in my eyes to think of how we cherished each and every moment of our lives together when you were alive. I miss you dad."

"This hole in my heart
Can't understand
Why we're apart.
If I had just
One more day
All the things
I'd want to say.
To gaze upon
Your beautiful face,
To ask,
Is heaven
really a place?
To hold you
Just one more time,
The highest mountain
I would climb.
I know you walk
Always With me
I only wish
That I could see.
Until that day
A part of me
Lives in heaven
Eternally.
Miss You So Much DAD XXXX"

"An Angel
Arrived for you
This morning
Told us not
To be forlorn.
For now you are
Free of pain.
Our loss
Is heavens gain.
A million things
I wanted to say
Pain made sure
You couldn't stay.
You've shown me
How to stand
& fight.
Your courage
Has been
An amazing sight.
So now the Angels
Wrap you in their wings
Carrying you forward
As the choir sings.
My heart is broken
But deep down
I know
It was time for you
To let go.
When you're settled
No matter
The weather
Don't forget
To send that feather...."

"Believe in rainbows
Dreams coming true
Shooting stars
That carry,
My love to you
Robins on the window
Feathers white as snow
Little signs that tell you
What you already know
Songs that play
Remind you of me
Divine timing
& synchronicity
My arms cannot hold you
But my love shall safely keep
Visiting your dreams
As you peacefully sleep
Death Is but a journey
One we all make
When it's your time
Your hand I shall take
Keep Believing in rainbows
For dreams do come true
For I am in heaven
Smiling at you"

"I thought of something
To share with you today,
As I went to call you
It took my breath away.
Memory crashed around me
Your loss like yesterday,
I wonder will I ever
Stop forgetting you've
Gone away.
I called aloud
So you could hear me,
Asked you for a sign
To show me
You're still around
In spirit form this time.
My pain was interrupted,
By a tapping sound
A robin on my window
As my heart
Began to pound.
In that very moment
I felt you were
So near
That you would
Be beside me
Through joy & darkest fear.
It's time I brought
You with me
Instead of living
In the past,
You & I
Will meet again
For love is built
To last"

"As I gazed
out the window
My thoughts
They were of you,
Wondering if you
Are at peace?
Is Heaven really true?
Are the rainbows
Really from you?
The song stuck
On repeat..
As in my grief
I count the days
Until we both
Shall meet...
A flutter upon
The window
Caught my mournful
Glance,
Robin Redbreast flew
In front of me
In joyful playful
Dance
His eyes were
fixed upon me
As if he had
heard every word.
A knowing passed
between us,
You had sent
This little bird.
I smiled & I nodded
Then you flew away
A light in my darkness
The joy in my day
I will not
Stay in sorrow
For your life
Was so carefree
So you sent a robin
To Watch over me"

"MY DAD
A father's touch, a Daddy's kiss,
A grieving Daughter,
The Dad I will always miss,
An empty house, an empty chair,
A father's love, no longer there,
A broken heart, tear filled eye,
Another soul in the sky,
The times we shared,
The laughs we had,
Things I miss when I think of you

This tribute was added by Marian Kelly on 24th April 2015

"When tomorrow starts without me,
and I'm not there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
all filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
... the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things
we didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me,
as much as I love you,
And each time you think of me,
I know you'll miss me, too.
But when tomorrow starts without me,
please try and understand,
That an angel came and called my name
and took me by the hand,
And said my place was ready
in heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind
all those I dearly love.
But as I turned to walk away,
a tear fell from my eye,
For all my life I'd always thought
I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live for
and so much yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible
that I am leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays,
the good ones and the bad,
I thougth of all the love we shared
and all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday,
I thought, just for a while,
I'd say good-bye and kiss you
and maybe see your smile.
But then I fully realized
that this could never be.
For emptiness and memories
would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly things
that I'd miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did,
my heart was filled with sorrow.
But when I walked through heaven's gates,
I felt so much at home.
When God look down and smiled at me,
from His great golden throne.
He said, "This is eternity
and all I've promised you,
Today your life on earth is past,
but here it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow,
but today will always last,
And since each day's the same day,
there's no longing for the past.
But you have been so faithful,
so trusting and so true,
Though there were times you did some things
you knew you shouldn't do.
But you have been forgiven,
and now at last your free.
So won't you take my hand
and share my life with me?"
So when tomorrow starts without me,
don't think we're far apart,
For everytime you think of me,
I'm right here in your heart.


Miss you Dad"

"What a lovely lovely man.
I loved staying in the Kelly home years ago and Peter would drive myself and Marian to and from work in Hallmark Cards, Rathfarnham, Dublin every day.
I don't know any other Dad who would do that. He was so kind and gentle, I always felt welcome in his home.
You will be missed by so many people Peter
Sleep well xxx ❤️❤️❤️"
