For my daddy

Shared by Abigail Adebiyi on September 14, 2021
Have you seen my Daddy?
I don't know where he's gone.
Sometimes it hurts so much
I can't seem to carry on.

I hear he doesn't look quite the same.
He doesn't need much rest.
The IV and medications are all gone;
In fact, he looks his best.

Is he playing tag with his parents
In that place way up high?
Or is he napping in God's garden
Where the beautiful in hammocks lie?

Some say he is always watching.
I hope this to be true
And that one day he'll return to me
And say, "I've come for you."

Have you seen my Daddy?
I imagine he's doing okay,
Though it hurts to know
I can't call him every day.

I really miss my Daddy.
I wasn't ready to say goodbye.
It will never be the same.
Years from now, I know I'll cry.

I bet God is with my Daddy,
Wrapped up in His arms,
Sheltered from all illness and sorrow,
Keeping him from harm.

I bet he sees us mourning
But would want us to smile
And tell us our time part
Is only a little while

I'll never quite understand
Why your time here was so small,
But you said you'll always be there
To catch me when I fall.

I miss you so much, Daddy,
But I hope and pray
That when it's my time, you'll come for me.
I'll see you again someday.

I guess it was meant to be
That your work here on Earth was done.
Now your life in paradise
Has only just begun.

Tears that I weep and prayers
Will hopefully travel very far
To reach my loving daddy
Sitting among the stars.

In loving memory of my hero, Adebayo O. Odifiri 1941-2021
