For my Dad on the 25th Father's Day without him.

You took a drink
it was ice water,
an expression of pain
as you tilted your head back,
and the glass fell to the floor.

I rushed to you,
my heart already breaking.
With unknown strength,
I lifted you from the chair,
laid you on the floor,
and knelt by your side.

My hand on your cheek,
Please, please donít leave me.

I saw a miracle
Your face of nearly seventy years
took on the features of a newborn
I could almost see your soul leave your body
as you ceased to move through life.

Oh Daddy, how I miss you still.

Wow, I do know that when people pass from this life to a greater place the worry leaves their face, I've seen it too. This is a good pic of the event. So happy to see you old friend. E-me and let me know about the reunion.

Though short in nature, ever so long are the feelings displayed in this loving pen. He was already given his gift the day you were born.

This is heartbreaking! I've seen that same look of peacefulness on my mom's face when she passed away. It's beautiful to see, and gives hope for happiness that awaits us. I share your pain.
Hugs, Laura
