My heart aches for you dad why did you have to go?
I’m trying to hold back the tears and not let the pain show,
But I’m angry and sad dad, angry because you was took from me,
But mostly sad because in my life you can no longer be.

I know you tried fighting it dad right up to the very end,
But death suddenly snatched you away when we thought you was on the mend,
You tried hiding away because you was stubborn and you was strong,
But I’m sorry I told everyone they would have found out you was ill before long.

I know you had it in your head they had no right to know as they didn’t care,
But more people than you realised dad had there peace with you to bare,
I wont lie dad to me you wasn’t a perfect parent but none of us are,
But I saw how much you changed dad, you tried harder, you raised the bar.

It doesn’t matter to me how much you did dad I will always love you,
And I hope I spent enough time with you that you know this is true,
I will always keep in mind, gone but never forgotten as I always say,
Because dad how can I ever forget that you passed away near my birthday.

I’m grateful our last conversation for a change wasn’t all that bad,
You told me you was proud of me for that I shouldn’t be sad,
So I will make you proud dad and write a story like I promised to,
And if I get published one day my first book will be dedicated to you.

I feel for you dad nothing I write will ever be enough,
But I will keep writing even when times seem tough,
This final act I can do for you is to keep to what I last said,
And write my story every word for you that are in my head.
