Dad is such a special word,
A word that brings to mind,
A big warm smile, a helping hand
A way of being kind,
Devotion to the family,
A word of patience too,
“Dad” is such a special word,
Because it stands for “you.”

He has gone across the river,
To the shore of evergreen.
And we long to see his dear face,
But the river flows between;
Someday, sometime we shall see
The face we loved so well,
Someday we’ll clasp his hand,
And never say farewell.

An understanding heart,
An intelligent mind
We miss you Dad,
You were one of a kind.

There’s a place in heaven that’s
Marked “reserved”
For fathers such as he,
Who lived lifelong devotion to
his wife and family.
And there’s a place in our hearts
Marked that way too,
Where his dear memory
Will be loved as he was loved,
Before he entered eternity.

You still live on the hearts and minds of the living family you left behind.

The rolling stream of life rolls on.
But still the vacant chair
We recall the love, the voice, the smile
Of the one who once sat there.

If we could have one lifetime wish,
One dream that could come true,
We’d ask with all our hearts,
For yesterday and you.

An understanding heart,
An intelligent mind,
We miss you Dad,
You were one of a kind.

Thank you for loving and sharing,
For giving and for caring,
God bless you and keep you,
Until we meet again.

Sadly missed along life’s way,
Quietly remembered every day,
No longer in our life to share,
But in our hearts he’s always there.
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn’t go alone,
For part of me went with you,
The day God called you home
Those we love don’t go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed, and very dear.

More and more each day we miss him
Friends may think the wound is healed
But they little know the sorrow
Lying within our hearts concealed

We often think of days gone by
When we were all together.
A shadow o’er our lives is cast,
Our loved one gone forever.

We think of him in silence,
No eyes can see us weep;
But still within our aching hearts,
His memory we keep.

We little knew the day that
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone.
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories.
Your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken
and nothing seems the same,
but as God calls us one by one
the chain will link again.

You were given the gift of life
And now you’ve been called home
One day you’ll call me to your heavenly home
Then we’ll meet again in paradise
And there we will remain.
