Daddy's boy

This is a poem written by a friend of mine that I thought was absolutely beautiful. He shared this with me just moments before I was to begin my post about how I felt about missing my mother, Amazing how many of his feelings are the very same ones that I experience in my day to day thoughts of her. Thank you, Keith Heisler, for allowing me to share the feelings that you were so eloquently able to put into words.

Daddy's Boy

Today would have been your Birthday; you’ve been gone for far too long.
It hurt’s to think about you still; I’m feeling all alone.
I hope that you found happiness; on the other side.
I hope that we will meet again; when my days are gone.
It’s hard for me to let go, I need you in my life.
Where do I go for comfort, or when I need advice?
I need you here for guidance, to help me figure out this ride.
I know I’m being selfish, and it was just your time.
But Inside I’m still that little boy, who needs you by his side.
I know that I’m no child; I have children of my own.
I wish you could see them; and see how big they’ve grown
They never got to meet you; for that I’m sorry every day.
I love you dad you’re in my heart; and that will never go away.

I love you dad Happy Birthday!




  1. Thank you for sharing this! It's hard for me to read it, but not as hard as it was to write it.

    Now my memory's of him will live on. This is a beautiful, brave thing you are doing, and it works!

    After reading this blog I was inspired in my own life to complete some projects,that I had all but given up on. And maybe one day I will inspire people the same way you have inspired me.
