We will miss you dad

God looked around his garden
and he found an empty space
he looked down upon the earth
and saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
and lifted you to rest
god's garden must be beautiful
he always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering
he knew you were in pain
he knew that you would never
get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
the hills were hard to climb
so he closed your weary eyelids
and whispered peace be thine.
It broke our hearts to lose you
but you didn't go alone
for part of us went with you
the day god called you home.
We love you
we miss you so much
your love, your kindness
your soft, gentle touch.
If we had to live life over
we would choose you once more
if it meant losing you again
it's worth all the tears in the world.
While our hearts are now filled
with sadness and tears
we had many good memories
you will always be near.
The day that you left us
tears fell from the sky
our hearts filled with sorrow
your final goodbye.
For years you did fight
and struggled to stay here
but you sent us a sign
when the end was quite near.
Thank you for sending
that white butterfly our way
your soul is at peace
and not far away.
Your body has died
but your spirit lives strong
in each one of us
where it forever belongs.
Your time here was short
we wish you could stay
but they need you upstairs
the angels called you their way.
Spread your wings and fly, dad
up to heaven you go
no longer will you suffer
down on earth here below.
They wont hear you coming
so softly you walk
when you get up to heaven
make sure that you knock.
You struggle no longer
you are free of pain
your mind is clear
and call us by name.
You can fix cars once more
through the woods you can bike
drive wherever you please
up the mountain you may hike.
In the breeze we hear your whisper
feel your warmth from the sun
upon the lake, see your reflection
in the streams we see you run.
Until the day comes
that we cross over too
our family will not be complete
Until we meet that day with you.
