On Ascension Day

Daddy died on Ascension Day

His Spirit watched as we stood there and prayed

all the angels sang up above

for his heart was so full of love

 

Daddy died on Ascension Day

What do you think he was trying to say

His Spirit rose in a heavenly way

Daddy died on Ascension Day

 

(My father’s essence went to Heaven on May 16, 1996, Ascension Day on the Catholic Calendar.  This was the chorus of a song that I wrote in his honor.)
