From this life he has departed,
And has left us broken hearted,
In his memory from those he left behind,
Yes, from all of us whom he loved so dear.
And yes! We keep his memories near.
Oceans of tears we all have shed,
And with pain all our hearts have bled,
He was our Daddy, Husband and guide,
His departure left an empty space inside.
But oh it seems we can hear him say,
How beautiful the breaking of the day,
Listen dear children and precious wife,
I had to leave Earth's troubled life.
I want to tell you, one and all,
It was wonderful to answer the Master's call,
I know you miss me very much,
My teasing smile and comforting touch.
Please don't grieve because I have gone,
I've just stepped inside of my new home,
I cannot began to tell you the Beauty,
Of the mansion, it isn't my duty.
Just hold to the Master's Hand and Pray,
And He will comfort you night and day,
Now children and wife, friends too, it won't be
Till we'll all be together in our brand new
In memory of my precious Daddy
Robert Pinkney Lail 1976
