A Letter to My Daddy
Now March 22nd is a day I won't forget
You took your flight with Jesus, but I wasn't ready yet
I held your hand so tightly as you looked me in my eyes
At first I didn't comprehend but now I realize
You were trying to tell me, "the pain I is none"
"It's OK to let me go my work down here is done"
I'm confident in knowing, you're in the presence of our God
But to function on this earth without you, is truly gonna be hard
You had a special ringtone when you called me on my cell
And if I didn't answer, you would leave a short voicemail
That simply said "Ta'Wanna, this yo daddy girl"
"Call me back" and when I did we'd talk about the world
No dialysis is needed, where you are today
Your days of feeling so much pain are all now gone away
I'm going to miss you Daddy, my life is not the same
But I know you had to travel on when our Lord and Savior came!
I will love you forever!!!
Your baby girl,
Ta'Wanna
Jm free
Dont grieve for me, for now Im free
Im following the path God has laid for me.
I took His hand, when I heard Him call
I turned my back and left it all.
1 could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work or play,
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found peace at the end of the day.
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joys.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow,
My lifes been full, I savored much,
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Dont lengthen it now with undue grief
Lift tip your hearts, and share with me,
God wanted me now, He has set me free.
