Dad
If only i knew you wouldn't always be here,
to hold, to be held, to always be near,
to listen, to call, to just know you are there,
when I had something I wanted to share.

If only I knew that one day you would go,
and there'd be more I'd want you to know.
A past and a future, a lost and a found,
if only I'd known you wouldn't be around.

If only I knew of the grief I would feel,
of the begging and hoping it wasn't real.
Of the years and times I took for granted,
of the growing seeds that you planted.

If only I knew of a moments value,
that it cost nothing to be with you,
that the buried treasure was in my chest,
living proof that you were the best.

I wear a crown of memories on my head,
a love, a life, I now live instead.
I'll represent every piece of you,
I'll live and love my whole day's through.

If only! If Only! If only I had of known,
I'd have clung so tight to stop you going,
but I am lucky I live without regret,
and proud of the memories I won't forget.

When I am gone, do not fear my memory.

Do not be afraid to speak my name or look through old photographs.

Do not be scared to play old videos so that you might hear my voice and see me laughing.

Do not be wary of visiting my favourite places or eating my favourite foods or singing along to my favourite songs.

I know it will hurt. Those memories will remind you that I am gone.

They will stab at you like a knife in an open, gaping wound. Raw, excruciating pain.

But after a while the knife will become less sharp, the wound will become less open and the pain will become less raw.

And those memories will remind you that I was here.

That I lived.

Do not reduce my life to my death.

Speak my name, hear my voice, sing my favourite songs and visit my favourite places.

Because that’s how I can stay alive a little.

Right here with you ๐Ÿงก
