I remember your love
Throughout the years
Quieting my heart
Stilling my fears

You taught me the things
I needed to know
To help me to live
To help me to grow

You led me through
So many bumps and scrapes
Picked me up, dusted me off
Sent me on my way

Oh those years went so fast
Soon I left you behind
A life of my own
I needed to find

Through our times together
Seemed oh but a few
I still felt your love
Even now I still do

I knew this time would come
I dreaded this day
I watched in fear
As your health began to fade

You are gone now
Into an eternal home
Someday Iíll see you again
Someday I'll come

You are my father
You always will be
In my heart Iíll carry you
For all eternity

Very beautifully written. Having lost my own father and mother, I identified with your poem.
