I know I talk about him alot

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I know I talk about my dad a lot on this site and who he was to me and how much I miss him...This year on 11/15/2007 it was 8 years since he passed away..and I thought Id show you guys a picture of him as well as something I wrote for him...
This was him about 3 months before he died watching my last soccer game and cheering me on...


Here is what I wrote...
Dad
As I hear the cry of my mother
I feel instantly out of place,
As they break the bad news to me gently
Salty tears stream down my face.
I couldn't believe what they had told me
It couldn't really be true,
As I quietly held my head in my hands
I didn't know what to do
Was I suppose to break down?
Get up and walk out the door?
The person I'd known since I was born
Was not here any more
Always there when I needed him
A caring shoulder to cry on,
Trustworthy, Honest, graceful and kind
Someone that you could rely on
Now all that is left are memories
The good and fun times that we had
The man I would have done anything for,
My dad!

Brandi those are both beautiful! They brought tears to my eyes because I know and share your pain. I lost my dad almost 16 years ago and while it has gotten alot easier, sometimes it still seems unreal that you can't see or talk to them again.... My husband just lost his father 2 days ago and his burial service is tomorrow and I really just dread it for him, but it's something we all have to get through at some point in our lives....
Anyways, You have given a lovely tribute to your father and he knows how much you love him.... you are talented with words.

It sounds like you and your father were very close and had a wonderful relationship. I think that the fact you talk about him so much and wrote that beautiful tribute to him is a great way to honor his memory.
