i never thought that saying goodbye would be so sad or even make you mad
until the day we had to say goodbye to a friend, our dad
that was the day our world seemed to fall apart
we finally had you back in our lives, a new beginning, a new start
we are blessed with the wonderful memories we once shared
and in the end you told us that you've always cared
as we stood by your side you took your last breath
you were finally at ease finally at rest
so as we gather here today to tell my dad goodbye
he is up there in heaven saying 'i am okay, i am alright'
now he will never get sick or get too tired
he can fish all day that his strong heart desires
he won't get tangled up or lose any hooks
and once again gets to say 'hey mom and dad take a look'
life is unpredictable and we will never know why
but sometimes gets easier when saying goodbye.
for my dad HUILLO
from your daughter jennifer lorona-your little hun
