Saying good bye to my Daddy.

 Memories roll in and out like the tide

I didn't have the chance to say goodbye

Love, laughter, creativity & pride

A lion always on my side

So proud of you and your sobriety

Only your body was seventy~three

You called yourself the worlds oldest  teenager

You lived life to the fullest, and were always eager

To share your leatherwork or give out earrings

You were such a free spirited loving being

My favorite memories driving, flying & fishing

Dancing at the legion, standing on your toes

How you would always drive me where ever I wanted to go

You on your knees and our  castles made of sand

Walking down the beach holding your hand

I have saved every letter you've ever written me

and will cherish them all eternally.

I can still hear your voice calling my name

even though, I know  it's not the same

In my heart I will keep you near and dear

So the memories will never disappear

I love you Daddy & will miss you so

I wish you didn't have to go

I'd like one more sunset stroll along the beach

In my heart, I know your Spirit is always within my reach.

Beautifully written, and a worthy tribute. Brought a tear to my eye. I wonder if you should move the last two lines to the top and the top two lines to the bottom, so the poem would start out I'd like one more sunset stroll along the beach and would end I didn't have the chance to say goodbye. Powerful ending that way. ((hugs))

It sounds like he lived and died happy, able to look back proudly at a life lived in the best possible way. Those happy memories will keep you warm until you meet again in the next life. Beautiful ode to a beautiful soul.
