Remembering my Daddy

3 years ago today heaven gained a beautiful angel,
My Daddy.

Christmas is a wonderful time of the year, but it will never be the same once you 
lose a parent and especially if your loss occurs during the holidays.
My Daddy was the best 
He was loved by so many.
I remember so many great things about him and 
my girls speak of their, "PaPa June Bug" often!

Though he is not here in the flesh;
he will 

Cherish these little moments every chance you get;
before you know it they will be gone.
Take lots of pictures, eat together every chance you get and never leave without saying,

Imagine if I was given one moment,
just a single slice of my past.
I could hold it close forever,
and that moment would always last.

I'd put the moment in a safe,
within my hearts abode.
I could open it when I wanted,
and only I would know the code.

I could choose a time of laughing,
a time of happiness and fun.
I could choose a time that tried me,
through everything I've done.

I sat and thought about what moment,
would always make me smile.
One that would always push me,
to walk that extra mile.

If I'm feeling sad and low,
if I'm struggling with what to do.
I can go and open my little safe,
and watch my moment through.

There are moments I can think of,
that would lift my spirits every time.
The moments when you picked me up,
when the road was hard to climb.

For me to only pick one moment,
to cherish, save and keep,
Is proving really difficult,
as I've gathered up a heap!

I've dug deep inside my heart,
found the safe and looked inside,
there was room for lots of moments,
in fact hundreds if I tried.

I'm building my own little library,
embedded in my heart,
for all the moments spent with you,
before you had to part.

I can open it up whenever I like,
pick a moment and watch it through,
My little library acts as a promise,
I'll never ever forget you
