Dad

I never knew you

But when I gaze upon that photo,

The one of me in your arms

When I was only 3 months old

The day of your last breath,

I know that you loved me.

I never met you,

But when I get to meet my brothers

And my sisters

I get to see all the parts of who you were,

Reflected through them.

Their laughter and love

Kindness Godliness and goodness

Tell me a bit about who you were.

I never got to say to how much I love you dad,

But when I read my mother’s words to you and about you

I know how much you were loved and cherished,

I never got to say thank you

But I am thankful for who you were,

What you achieved,

and how you provided for us in your short life,

Thank you for being a father to me.

I love you dad,

Through Grace I will get to tell you in person

Another day!
