MISSING YOU DAD

MISSING YOU DAD

WRITTEN BY NICHOLAS GARCIA

It doesn’t feel like it has been a year…

That you went away leaving us here….

I know that death isn’t a choice..

Despite the protest  you may voice……

Maybe I’m selfish in a way…

But I miss you today…..

I know it was time for you to move on…..

But it’s so hard to believe you’ve gone….

If by chance you’re passing by….

Sorry there wasn’t time to say good-bye…..

If I can close with a verse that doesn’t rhyme…..

I LOVE YOU DAD….

 

This is  poem I wrote  after the first year of my dad’s passing.I believe I posted it on a web site for writers. The name alludes me at the moment. I believe it was something Dome. Pleasure Dome. Like that. Anyway, I felt it only fitting that I place it here. 

It has been ten years since I wrote those words. A long time in the healing..I don’t think you ever quite get over it. You just learn to manage the feelings.There isn’t a day that goes by that he doesn’t come to  mind. I am not sure when or how., because it wasn’t my doing. Somewhere along the way my mourning his death, my loss, changed to celebration of his life. and the time I was able to share it with him……

    1. Glad you came by. And that my little poem struck a heart cord. I am just now realizing there are many people missing love ones this year.

      Sorry for all the typos. When I first wrote the comment I was at work and didn’t take the time to edit. And I really have to make it a point to edit and improve my typing. My own style I call it the two finger peck. lol
