June 1924 - Aug 2011.


Today, I want to carve
Weeping words in the sky
For a father; husband on whom
We could forever depend.

The willows weep as the
Stars fall from the sky
I never knew how-so
You’d make me cry.

Your laughter may try to disappear
Your soft voice is forever near.
Buried in a grave your love does live
Memories of a father
Unconditional love forever his gift.

Tears of pain fade to vain
In heavenly light we’ll
Dwell again at His table
In the City of the Divine!

I had to smile when I read your review on my poem, Mother. I surely do have a southern accent. My mother has Alzheimer's disease and slowly dies. Your poem, Dad, breaks my heart. Tears fill my eyes. I,too, lost my father to cancer 3 years ago. My condolence to you Andy Turner. I am so sorry. Your poem is deeply felt and moving...

Many of us can relate to this Andy..
alas my parents left this world while I was not nearby..They lived in Australia while I am living in Croatia..they had sis and bro at their side so that makes it easier on me..however memories do their thing and many-a-time I find myself thinking of the days when life was simple and secure bathed in their love..

Touching poem,
Blessings,

vesna :)

A heartfelt portrait lovingly painted by a son in whom this stalwart friend and father lives on. I love that picture, too, and your dear Mum's eyes say it all. So alive, so vibrant.

Today, I want to carve
Weeping words in the sky

... such authentic words and emotion here. Faith-filled as well as honouring lament, Andy. xx

I can relate to this Andy. I lost my dad in 2005. The first year is the hardest, especially around the holidays or his birthday. But it does get better as you heal. Patrick

A wonderful tribute to your Dad. My Dad has been gone 11 years already, and I still miss him, and the Holidays have never been the same for me since his passing.

What a tender, loving tribute and by the dates it appears the wound is still fresh. Makes the holidays a tad harsh. Though his years in this realm were ample, it doesn't comfort the loss much.
Wishing you comfort & happiness Andy.
