With you gone there have been less smiles for me to see
There have been fewer hugs
Fewer moments of happiness
Fewer twinkles in the sky
I remember the twinkles in your eyes
With you gone there have been less memories to make
There have been fewer jokes
Fewer looks of dis*approvals 😉
Fewer moments of tricks to play
I remember the tricks you would play
With you gone there have been three less Birthdays
Three less Fathers Days
Almost three years less here with me
Doesn’t mean the end of smiles between us three
Perhaps the time is shared between
A new day before
Breaks the waves on distant shores
Yet the dawn has woken anew
Heaven and Angels are waiting with you
You smile and wave farewell
The birthday has passed
The memories swell
AS the tears to bid you
I will always remember you…
I will always Love you
June 14th 1948- December 18, 2006

Absolutely beautiful. Having lost my dad, I identified with every word.The years go by so quickly, but I can still see his face, feel his hands, and hear his voice as if he had just visited. I find that the warm memories of my father are treasures that he left for me.
Karen… time is the wind which we can not see… the invisible blessings… yet the memories are treasures. Thank you
