Dad's Empty Chair At Christmas.

What I'd give if I could say,
"Hello Dad" in the same old way.
To hear his voice and see his smile,
to sit with him and chat for a while.
So if your Father is still here,
cherish him with care,
for you'll never know the heartache
until you see his empty


  1. This is so true . You never realize how much you will miss your dad . And the talks you had. When you thought you knew everything, and then realize later how right and smart he really was. His caring touch and concern when you were ill. Or when you were hurting and he'd do something that he knew you liked, or fixed you something to eat and talk to you. Oh how many times I've wanted to say , how much I love him and ask his forgiveness for some stupid thing I did when I was young. Yes we miss our mother but a father is as special as she, and it seems we listen to what she said, didn't make as many mistakes.

  2. I would give anything to talk to my dad for just one day!

  3. I miss my Dad a whole lot!! He was abusive to me, but I believe he came to know Jesus in his later years and I will see him in heaven and the first thing I will say to him is "I'm sorry for being such a disappointment and source of constant problems for you" Then I will tell him I never stopped loving him and he was a good dad and an honorable man!!!

  4. If I try very hard I can still see my Dad and hear his voice........miss him always especially when the Grandkids and the Great Grands are around....i look at them and hope he does too and he smile that he had knowing he had something to do with each and everyone of them being on this earth!!!!

  5. My Dad died 21 years ago now, but I still can't forget him, nor all the great times we had. The tears well up and my heart aches ~ Love you Dad xo

  6. I lost my dad 5 years ago dec 7th. I was a daddies girl for sure. We used to go arrowhead hunting and fishing and camping. I miss him soooooooo much

  7. My father passed in 2002, and I still miss him so much. Of course, the pain has eased, but there are times when just thinking about him can bring tears to my eyes. I couldn't have asked for a better father.

  8. I lost my Dad 19 years ago today I would give anything to hear and talk to him again. I miss you so much you are my best friend still till this day miss you and love you Daddy
