Without a kiss on the cheek or a hug goodbye,

One day you left my side.

Without a word said or a goodbye note,

I did not know if I should have hope.

Without that last supper with your family,

I did not know if God you will be.

Without Daddy by my side I will never know,

How muchyou love me so.

Without that guidance in my life ahead,

How do I know where to make my bed?

Without you beside me on this land,

You'll never be asked for my hand.

Without you in my life, it is left incomplete,

My family to be you will never meet.

Without you here, you'll never hold my hand and say,

"Now is the time to give you away".

Without you, my children will not know,

Of the Grandfather that did not go.

Without you here, it means I will forever cry,

Knowing I did not get to say my last goodbye.
