9 years…

Thinking of my Dad today.  Hard to believe it’s been 9 years.  Still miss him every day.
I love this song….

You’re Still Here, Faith Hill

Here are the lyrics:

Thought I saw you today
You were standing in the sun then you turned away
And I know it couldn’t be
But my heart believed
Oh it seems like there’s something everyday
How could you be so far away
When you’re still here
When I need you you’re not hard to find
You’re still here
I can see you in my baby’s eyes
And I laugh and cry
You’re still here

I had a dream last night
That you came to me on silver wings
And I flew away with you on a painted skyAnd I woke up wondering what was real
Is what you see and touch or what you feel
‘Cause you’re still here
Oh you’re everywhere we’ve ever been
You’re still here

I heard you in a strangers laugh
And I hung around to hear him laugh again
Just once again
Thought I saw you today
You were standing in the sun then you turned away

And, also love this song by Faith, for my Dad…

There You’ll Be, Faith Hill

  1. How wonderful it must be to miss your father. :)

  2. Peace be with you my friend.

  3. After I pushed “post comment” I thought twice about my statement, thinking it might have been insensitive.

    I certainly didn’t mean any disrespect.

    I simply meant that you are fortunate to have had a father, that had such qualities and virtue – that he is missed. Very rare in current times to have that type of father, and those kinds of memories.

    Once again, no disrespect or insensitivity intended.

    • Teresa – absolutely no offense taken. I completely understood your original comment… and agree whole-heartedly. I *am* one of the lucky ones… to have had a father like him in my life for as long as I had him. The missing him sucks. Big time. But not enough to overshadow the benefit.
      Thank you and please know that I am never one to be easily offended.

  4. This brought tears to my eyes and a melancholy rhythm to my heart. I feel your sadness and I know that you will be strong as you have been for the past nine years. It’s hard. I know. But as the song sang beautifully clear. They are still here…

    “And I woke up wondering what was real
    Is what you see and touch or what you feel”

    It is definitely what you feel. And as I came to realize on my own… it was my desire that kept him close, when I needed him most, yet I knew… there comes a time when we must let them fly, without fear that once we call on them they are never far from home. Blessings, I thought of you on the 24th and sent a silent prayer… E
