At forest’s edge a clearing lit bright,
northern lights beckoned my name,
snowflakes fell like cotton candy,
covering the ground of sweet magic,
his presence filled my empty spaces,
of snow, I threw a handful with glee,
began to build and he held ground,
my snowman, that never melts,
I miss you Dad, Merry Christmas

A compact memory enlightened from within, which finally becomes a strong symbol of closeness and confidence. Touching verses, Christine.

Sooooo touching
Salty tears
Don't let remembrance bring on snares nor fear
But always keep in your heart those loved and near.
With the dawn comes another day
God works in that way.

Truly magical, Christine! Your dear Dad must have been a wonderful Santa character - loving and larger than life - who will always hold the ground of your heart. Love the lightheartedness and joy in this relationship as denoted by throwing the handfuls of snow "with glee" - says it all! Have a wonderful, snow-bright, New Year! xx

Chrissie this is truly a testament to the man who inspired so much love and caring in your own heart. To be remembered so is all that any father could truly ask for. You speak the words of so many children who's parents are gone with this delightful and poignant write. Thank you for sharing it with us,

So very tender and beautiful, Christine. A heartfelt write by one of my favorite poets. P.S. I miss my dad also; he died in 1987. He was my guiding star and such a man of wisdom; I wish I could still ask his advice. The tears are now rolling down my cheek. A very powerful write and nostalgic memory.
