We'll Always Love You, Dad!!
Each day you strived to live; your body too weak to be.
Your love will live forever, since your heart has set you free.
Now you walk so bravely, you free the pain no more.
Angels have come to guide you and bring you to Heaven's doors.
Memories we'll hold so dearly, your smile, warmed our hearts.
And through our lives you'll live, you touched so many parts.
Hard days may be before us, It's all a part of God's plan.
Why you left so soon, we may never understand.
You'll be alone no longer, and you would tell us "Don't be sad."
Please believe you were no burden, we'll always love you, dad!!
Our lives have changed forever, Since the day you passed away.
In heaven you'll be waiting, to meet us again us again someday.
