Father Gone Away

I watched my Father for many years, he was my one & only hero that i truly loved.
I remember the times he talked to me about GOD with my family, even when he was too tired when coming home from work.
His strength was always so amazing to me, i felt so safe in his embrace.
My understanding of who he was & what he's was like, he was so many things especially a man of patience.
His strength was my strength, with immovable faith i had for him.
Our talks & teaching me the many aspects of life.
I truly loved my beloved Father, a father i respect & thank GOD for.
I owed him so much appreciation.
Therefore trusting him throughout my life made me stronger & stronger.
Knowing now that not even me his only son, could never fill the shoes he wore.
Sadly i don't worry about that anymore.
Knowing he tried so hard to prepare me for life, and myself now being a dad like he once was.
Now it's my turn to teach my son.
To my dad i wanted to say i still miss so very much, although he's not here anymore.
Not here because he's gone up to heaven.
Gone to heaven to be with the LORD.
