I miss him...

God - our heavenly Father
Oh, God - and my father
Who is also in heaven
May the light
Of this flickering candle
Illuminate the night the way
Your spirit illuminates my soul

Papa, can you hear me?
Papa, can you see me?
Papa, can you find me in the night?
Papa, are you near me?
Papa, can you hear me?
Papa, can you help me not be frightened?

Looking at the skies
I seem to see a million eyes
Which ones are yours?
Where are you now that yesterday
Has waved goodbye
And closed its doors?
The night is so much darker
The wind is so much colder
The world I see is so much bigger now that I'm alone

Papa, please forgive me
Try to understand me
Papa, don't you know
I had no choice?
Can you hear me praying,
Anything I'm saying,
Even though the night is filled with voices?

I remember everything you taught me
Every book I've ever read
Can all the words in all the books
Help me to face what lies ahead?
The trees are so much taller
And I feel so much smaller
The moon is twice as lonely
And the stars are half as bright

Papa, how I love you
Papa, how I need you
Papa, how I miss you
Kissing me goodnight

(song by Barbra Streisand)


  1. Kan even geen woorden hiervoor vinden, wel een knuf:



  2. Dank je wel, lieverd!

  3. Wauw, heel erg mooi Tink, prachtig.
    Ik ben er gewoon stil van, ik vind het een heel erg ontroerend gedicht...
    Ook een dikke knuffel van mij,


  4. Ik heb het niet geschreven, hoor; was het maar waar! Het is een nummer van Barbra Streisand, dat me keer op keer in tranen achterlaat omdat het zo goed verwoordt hoe ik mijn vader mis...

  5. Dat maakt niet uiiiiiiiit!!!
    Hij is nog steeds mooi!
