"Miss u"

This tribute was added by Tracy Parks on 6th February 2017


Hold me Daddy a little bit longer,
For death I was severely scared,
I'm thinking, I'm not any stronger,
But now, our life on earth who cares.

In your little girls eyes, you could do no wrong,
My heart is filled with pride
I've looked at you, so tough and strong,
I felt you were my guide.

When Daily, I start without you,
I feel like I could fall apart,
I remember how you loved me too,
And I know your in my heart.

I think of you and feel you by my side,
I talk to you and often hear your voice,
My aching heart fills with pride,
For answering me was was your choice.

I love you Daddy, you must know,
It's truly comes from the heart,
For the days gone by was hard to show,
But I was your special little fart.

Some days are filled with sadness, Others with a grin,
Many memories, are so dear,
Like moonlighting with my Daddy, Friend,
Oh, How I miss you, I wish you were near.

The room was filled with love, everyone did pray,
As your breaths didn't grow any stronger,
With tearful eyes we watched and saw you pass away,
I couldn't realize, I didn't have my Daddy any longer.

So, truly, I still haven't really lost you,
My Angel, Daddy, Friend,
Our memories never die too,
For in Heaven is where we meet again.

    Although I never liked my nickname,
                    I will always love you,
                             Your little Pooter"

"My Darling Husband
Sometimes I just sit quietly
      Reflecting for a while
      Imagining your voice,            
      your face, your warm
         and loving smile.

  For its so lovely to recall
The happy times we had
When you played such a                  
     special role, as both                                                    
       Husband and Dad.

  And at this very special time,
     I only wish you knew
That I'd give all the world today,
to spend one more hour with you

     But I still have my Memories
    Bob and since we've been apart,
    It  comforts me so much to know
         That you are right here
                in my heart"

"Remember me with smiles and laughter,
For that is how I will remember you all.
If you can only remember me with tears,
Then don't remember me at all."
