In memory of Dad Poem
Posted 04 June 2008 - 03:11 PM
My dad passed away 3 years ago from cancer... it's so hard for me to imagine my wedding without him, but I know that he will be there. On his last day in the hospital he was unresponsive and we were all saying our goodbyes and I love you's but weren't really sure what he could here if anything. Well, when I had my time alone with him I told him how much I regretted that he would not be able to walk me down the isle when I get married, how much I was sad that his grandkids would never meet him. I asked him if he would please be there at my wedding, whenever that would be, watching over me, and at that moment he squeezed my hand so hard, I knew he heard me and was saying yes... I said in surprise even "you know what I'm saying daddy, you can hear me!" and he squeezed my hand again.
Ok, now I am on the verge of bawling again.
Anyways, I think that poem is perfect for the occasion... maybe I will print it out really small and hang it with the picture of him on my boquet, or maybe I will put it on a chair saved for him.

I can really relate to you. I lost my dad less than a month ago, and still wonder how Ill get through my wedding day. It breaks my heart that my future kids wont have him in their lives, but they will defintely know because I will be talking about him all the time!
I was thinking of the frame locket on the bouquet to...hes really there walking us down the isle that way

I found a beautiful memory frame at David's Bridal, (see one of the last posts...
It's not the greatest picture of him...but he wasn't exactly a big fan of getting his picture taken!!
