GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

For Daddy

There isn't a day that passes

Without you being on my mind

Three years can feel like forever

Time can be so unkind.

And though I talk to you daily

I long to see your face.

My life will never be the same

The world's a lonelier place.

I hoped by now I'd have recovered

From the pain of losing you

But it often seems harder

And I don't know what to do.

You touched so very many lives

With your smile and loving touch

I hope you know how much I miss you

And still love you so very much.
