A Letter to Dad in Heaven

How are things in ‘heaven’? 
    Is it like they say?
Is it awesomely wonderful?  
    If  I were to imagine, would it blow me away’?

Do you remember...the old rope swing you made for me?
     You pushed me to the sky,
The fishing pole you bought for me
      The trout and I?

Do you remember… special times, like Christmas?
    Family dinners we’d enjoy
Chicken & noodles…your favorite
    Topped off with blueberry pie

I feel you driving for me, 
    When roads are snowy cold
I feel you reassuring me,
    As I know I’m growing old

When I ache from missing you, 
    I think of where you are
It’s then your comfort calms me, 
    I know you are not far

I feel your watchful presence, 
    Tending to your kin
One day we’ll be together, 
    To love and live again
