Not by choice,
I'm gonna miss his voice.
The way he rocked me to sleep,
and held me when I'd weep.

His gentle hand was always there
for me,
Whether it be to push me on the swing-set,
or pushed me to strive harder in
everything I've done.

Putting it into words,
I'd rather be laughing and smiling,
about always having you there.
But I'm not going to be able to

Hopefully, I'll make it home
in time,
to hold you in my arms
when you leave,
as you did,
when I arrived...

A piece worthy of his love and reverence for your life, Rodd, it holds words unspoken, but strongly felt by the reader, his lifetime of love respected and honored by your beautiful, heart-felt admiration and gratitude, with words that ache with yearning. One look at your face in your bio holds much of what is the best in the world, elan flows from your form, instilled by his wisdom. You are so lucky to have had him, and he you.
