Missing your laugh I will never again hear. That is the reality that fills me with so much fear. No more smile on your face, No more warmth of your embrace. The last hug, The last kiss, The last goodbye leaves me with one last wish... To have you Dad, here today, Never to leave your Daughter this way.
