Did you write this? If so.. it almost seems like from the line "I'll gently whisper it's ok" on, that you take the role of your father and are looking at yourself. You, as your dad, will be with you, cheering you on, and always love you. I'm not sure what to think of this.

I did write it. It's not the greatest thing but it means a lot to me.

Some edits. If you like, use them. If not, oh well. Supposed to be breaks every 4 lines. Wouldn't let me have more than 25 line breaks in the comment.
"If you see me in the faces of a crowd
In the corners of your gaze
The reflection in a mirror
I was watching you those days
Even when it's hard to hear
Over the noise in crowded room
If you hear my voice in a whisper
I was guiding you from here
If you feel a presence in the silence
A peace when you don't know what to do
Some comfort far beyond your grasp
I was listening for you
I'll be cheering in your triumphs
I will always come through
You'll never have to wonder
I'll be with you everyday
No matter what you face ahead
I'll gently whisper it's ok
You'll never have to be alone
Because I'll always love you"

I'm not feeling my artistic writing ability too strongly right now, so I'm not going to try revising words. A line I might want to reword is
"I was listening for you" I like the idea, but I'm not sure about the wording. Maybe something along the lines of "I was there, soothing you"?

The only problem with the revisions you presented are that it takes the flow and rhyme scheme out of the poem. I do agree it gets a little rough at places....but I think that right now it is ok.
