I lay awake early Christmas morning
Trying to stay happy
Stay in the spirit
Glad to have a strong family
Honored to have a strong wife
But that hole is present in my life
The first birthday of Christ without my hero
I remember running to the tree
Not knowing what I would see
A bike, Dad could you teach me to ride?
Roller blades, could you teach me to glide?
A game, could you hook it up
Come on Dad let’s race RC Trucks!
Now I’m looking at the tree….
Staring at the cotton thinking of he..
I mean him
I mean Dad
LeRoy, a king amongst mediocre men
Now I can’t wait to see you again
Staring at the tree praying for the impossible/
Wishing to unwrap my father for my family
Is it okay to want the impossible?
Is it okay for a man to miss his daddy?
Is it okay to miss his laugh
Is it okay to want to unwrap my father’s love
No, only because it won’t happen.
So I’ll unwrap the amazing memories
The amazing life of Mr. Z
I’ll be honest I really wish he would come back to me…
Gotta be strong I have no choice…. but even the strong crack, and that’s okay. I love and miss you Dad!
