I would like to wish all of our fathers, “Happy Fathers Day.”
My own father is gone now; He lived out his whole life looking to fulfill that void and find contentment. It wasn’t but a few weeks before he passed, that the peace he had been shearching for came. This is a poem I wrote for him.
DAD I REMEMBER Dad I remember, oh so well; the stories you would tell. I remember the candy you would buy; and my shoe strings you would tie. I remember the toy's you would fix; and you holding me when I was sick. I remember all the laughter, joy and tears; that we shared all through the years. But Dad, the time I remember most; was the night you received the Holy Ghost. For by your face did it show; and from your face did it glow. Now, I have peace in my heart; to comfort me when we part. For I know you will soon give up the fight; for now your eyes are upon the light. I know I will have to say goodbye; but now with happiness I can cry. For in Heaven you will be; In Heaven waiting for me.
