My father was such a man, I recall so many beautiful memories he left me. He would carry me around dancing when I was a wee little thing singing "My Bonnie Lies over the ocean" and a "Bicycle Built for Two" it is this gentleness that helps form us. All the inner strength to face the world and the love.
Beautifully written and lovely tribute to your father.
You have my empathy and compassion. Know he will always be ever near you.
Love and Light

I need not know him directly but through you I see the magic of his being come forth and you have made him proud.

|I'm very sorry for your loss, Christine. I want to thank you for sharing this poem with us, too. I think this piece is spot-on in capturing the grieving process - the memories; the moments stilled in time that a person never forgets because they shaped and built foundations, the complex emotion.... Quit a poem. Thanks again for sharing it.

|Christine, I am sorry to hear of your loss. A dear friend of mine once said that parents shouldn't die until their children are ready for them to, but then... would anyone ever die? But then the question must be asked, does anyone ever truly die? For they live on in memory in our hearts and souls... You have so aptly shown this through your poem. May you feel comfort in this time of sorrow, and be able to hold your memories close around you to bring you peace.

Seems more and more we've reached that moment in time when we are saying goodbye more than hello.
