Hard Father's Day

Like lots of people I find fathers day a very hard time as I lost my dad in 2008 to a sudden heart attack.  As time goes on you think things will get easier and the longing to speak to him to pass but it doesn't you just learn to live without.  Whilst I was doing fathers day cards for my father in law and others I came across this poem and thought it was lovely - it doesn't have a name on it so I do not know who wrote it but I thought others might like it.

You never said I'm leaving
You never said goodbye
You were gone before I knew it, 
And only God knew why
A million times I needed you, 
A million times I cried
If Love alone could have saved you, 
You never would have died
In Life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart you hold a place, 
That no one could ever fill
It broke my heart to lose you, 
But you didn't go alone
For part of me went with you, 
The day God took you home.

Oh Nicky, a few tears here too - even so many years afterwards I still miss my Dad.
