My Father

So now it all comes down to this
I’ve said my last goodbyes
I’ll hold his hand and try to smile
while tear drops fill my eyes

Tonight he’ll pass through heavens gates
and loved ones he will find
His journey here is now complete
the pain he’ll leave behind

This letting go is hard to do
I’ve struggled everyday
I see the look upon his face
he waits for me to say...

Go on my Father….please let go
I need to see you nod
The angels wait to take you home
you’ll see the face of God

    A very moving and touching read. "I need to see you nod" was very powerfully worded. Very inspiring poetry!
