“My Father, My Friend”
You were always there for me,
A guiding hand to hold,
A friend to laugh and talk with,
A love that never grew old.
You taught me right from wrong,
And helped me to be strong,
You showed me how to face the world,
And said that I belonged.
I’ll miss your smile, your gentle touch,
The love you always gave,
But I’ll keep you in my heart,
For as long as I shall live.
“Memories of You”
I think of you in silence,
And often speak your name,
But all I have are memories,
And a picture in a frame.
I hold you close within my heart,
And there you will remain,
To walk with me throughout my life,
Until we meet again.
I’ll always treasure the memories,
And the love we shared,
For the memories will last forever,
Even though you’re no longer here.
