“How Hard This is”
Accepting that My Father is Gone
Remember he’s in a better place
(Doesn’t ease this pain)
Your Father wouldn’t want to see you this way.
(But these tears won’t stop!)
Now he’s with God and there
Is no more suffering.
(So why do I hurt so much?)
I keep hearing, “stay strong life goes on.”
(Well I feel weak and don’t care about tomorrow!)
I’m so full of anger, hurt, and regret.
(Not given the chance to say goodbye, something I’ll never forget)
I can’t, won’t, and don’t want to let you go!
(Hell, I don’t even know how)
Dad I will forever love you, honor, cherish, respect, and remember the awesome Father you are!
(You’ll forever be my everything, forever my shining star!)
I love you, more than words can express!
