His Life

Daddy’s Final Journey

Daddy today you stepped away from us
Deciding to move on without a fuss
You lived your life better than many
Today as you entered the land of plenty

Heaven celebrated by opening up the sky
We wish we had more time to bid you Good Bye
But the Almighty had better plans for you
There you lay looking better than the morning dew

Good Bye Daddy
