 A Part of Me


Sunday, two days ago

Geese flew overhead

Heading south

Moving slow.


Five years earlier

My father clung to life

He held on to me

Held on to his wife.


Phone rang that night

It was 3:33 am

Knew at that moment

He was out of sight.


Many weeks prior

I awoke every night

It was 3:33 am

God’s gift of sight.


My father, my hero

A man so proud

WWII veteran

He never spoke loud.

Reminders surround

I don’t mean to dwell.


Today, five years later

I cry.


My Daddy, I sigh.


Reality is...

Yesterday, today, tomorrow

Miss you Daddy, and

I feel the sorrow.

He must've meant a great deal to you. My father died about this time five years ago. I don't think much of him now that he is gone. I focus on my mother needs my help and encouragement to face the problems of her aging.

Wow! A great tribute to your special hero and loving father. Yes, his spirit lives inside of you and will always be a part of your heart and soul.

Yours in the love of Christ,

John Michael
