My Final Tribute

the hardest thing to do is mourn a fathers passing
when your alzheimers mother is on a rampage
you tell her when she ask what is wrong then she forgets
so i mourn silently as she continues to question
somewhere inside me is now a void

there were many ups and downs in our relationship
i am very headstrong and stubborn and so was he
we carried our feud into our elder years
he was a great grandfather and i a grandmother
somewhere inside me is now a void

it is hard to admit to my own immaturity but its true
you never think of death till it happens then its to late
how many years are gone how many treasured moments lost
a daughters pride a fathers pride where is the value
somewhere inside me is now a void

we chose our paths and never reversed gears
when the time came to admit what our hearts spoke
we were able to finally express our love for each other
and somewhere somehow i released him hes gone
somewhere inside me is now a void

dedicated to the memory of my father who died 24 dec, 2003
