Goodbye To Dad

God took you away,
it doesn't seem fair, 
but in the back of my mind,
you will always be there.

You were like a close friend,
and your paths did cross,
also your absence in this world,
is to me a great loss.

You were too young to die,
and too innocent to feel the pain,
only heaven benefits,
because you, it has now gained.

I may think of you a little less,
with each passing day.
but your strength is some thing I won't forget,
you also have changed me in a way.

I hope you rest in peace,
that's what you deserve,
I hope I lead my life like yours,
to meet up with you in the end.

    Wow Dylan. It is hard to loose your dad. I remember I lost my father three years ago and that was my best friend. My advise to you and I hope it is of value, and that is, remember the good times you had together and not that he is gone. remember all he taught you and do as he would have wanted you to do. I would love to read more of your poems. Keep writing and welcome to the soup

    Dylan, This is beautiful !!! You have a wonderful way of putting things - so very expressive. I agree with you, though, I think of him less and less every day. However not a lot of time goes by that I don't think of him. He was a good person, and I do miss him. You have a knack for writing. It is good to see your stuff in print. Keep it up. Grandpa. xoxox
