1. In Loving Memory Of My Beautiful Dad
If I only had five minutes the day you passed away,
I would have had time to tell you all the things I needed to say.
I never got to tell you how much you mean to me,
Or that you were the best dad, better than any man could be.
The last time that I talked to you
I wish I would have known.
I would have said I love you,
and kept you on the phone.
If I only had five minutes,
the morning you passed away,
I’d give you one last hug so tight and see your great big smile.
I’d tell you that I don’t think I could live without you,
not even for awhile.
I’d kiss your cheek and take your hand and tell you it’s okay to go
And tell you that I’ll miss you,
more than you’ll ever know.
But you were gone so quickly,
One last car ride you’d take.
Before you even knew it,
you were standing at heavens gate.
Now God has called upon you,
It’s time to get your wings.
To leave this life behind you,
And enjoy all of heavens beautiful things.
So wait for me in heaven Dad,
Don’t let me come alone.
The day the angels come for me,
Please be there to bring me home.
2. In Loving Memory Dad
These words are just for you and come
with love to say,
We think about you constantly and
miss you more and more each day.
To lose you left us devastated,
but when we feel the pain,
We only have to close our eyes and
you’re with us once again.
A special smile, a special face,
A special Dad we can’t replace…
Memories are a gift
to treasure…. And ours
of you, Dad,
will last forever!
3. I Miss You, Daddy
Dear Father in heaven,
Is my daddy there with you?
Will you tell him that I love him
And I really miss him, too?
I know how much he suffered
His last days here with me.
I’d never want him back again
If that’s how it’s meant to be.
But if you would please grant me
An answer to my prayer-
Would you let me keep the memories
of all the good times that we shared?
The times he’d say he loves me
with that twinkle in his eye
and how he’d always hug me
before I said good-bye.
And one more thing, Dear Father,
I want to thank you from the heart
for giving me a daddy
though now we are apart.
