He was the anchor of my dreams,
He warmed my heart like sunlight beams,
He eased my sorrows with words soft and mild,
He was a true friend to a wandering child.
In times of distress he comforted me,
He wiped my tears, he took away my misery,
To me he was a shining knight,
A source of strength through a lonely night.
After twelve years of laughter he was taken away,
I cried, I pined for him many a day,
Now as I tread this path without him by my side,
His love and blessing will always be my guide.
So, dear dad, I need you to
help me live this life full of worth and value,
and when I meet you in heaven above,
we'll be together, forever, in a haven of love.
