In Loving Memory

Dad,

Though you're gone

You're not forgotten

I had a dream about you

It was the end of August

In the dream you were very young

A peacefulness cradled you

Like drifting on soft, fluffy, pillow clouds

Love flowed through you

There was a bright, glowing, radiant, light

A gentleness covered you

There was an airy light feeling

The dream made me feel

Happy, safe, and sound

I knew everything would be alright

As I remember you

I want you to know

I miss you

It's the little things I miss the most

The little things you used to say

The way you said my name

Only you could say my name like that

You were always asking me, "how are things going in the big city?"

I miss your boisterous hearty laugh

Your smile wider than the deepest ocean

Your self-confidence in yourself

You passed on to me when I didn't think I had it

The way you slyly slipped money in my hand

You would simply say, "buy something nice for yourself"

I miss your warm words of wisdom

I miss your advice, attention, and guidance

The first day of November

I'll always remember

You slipped away quietly in your sleep

Leaving the hospital room I knew things would never be the same

I think of you often

I know I'm blessed

The first day of November

I lit a candle in your memory

You are in my heart

There I'll carry you always

The month of November is coming to an end

Love you always dad

May you rest in eternal peace
