GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN


Tania called me to ask, is your dad still on holiday
I replied ‘of course not, I’ve just seen him yesterday’
He wasn’t opening the door, I jumped into my car. My work is pretty close but that day it seemed so far.
I found him sleeping peacefully, a bit blue, his skin felt cold ‘Oh this can’t be true, Daddy you are not that old’
Gone but not forgotten, forever in our hearts Gone but not forgotten, you’ll always be a part You’ll always be a part of our lives
You’ll always be a part of our lives
A cascade of memories, was flashing through my head
Even now you pop up, although it’s years since you’ve been dead Building a fort together, a family barbecue
Sometimes you got angry, oh daddy I miss you
Gone but not forgotten, forever in our hearts Gone but not forgotten, you’ll always be a part You’ll always be a part of our lives
You’ll always be a part of our lives
I remember calling Bart, I had to let him know But I couldn’t speak not even two words in a row “Brother, our daddy has passed away”
Those were the hardest words I ever had to say
