One Sad Day


Fifteen years ago when  my father died
To the hospital I carried him that ill fated day
The staff was caring for him so by his side I could not abide
Then very  swiftly to surgery he was  taken away
As I was eating, God spoke to me in spirit and I felt daddy brush as he went away

Contest: God, Ghost, and Love

    Dear Sara, The day before my father died, he kissed my hand - something he had never done before; shortly after his passing - one night while I lie awake in bed in tears, I felt his breath on my hand - the same way it had been the day before he died. God Bless you sweetheart. Many congrats on your BIG WIN, Lainie

    Beautiful, Sara. My dad passed on 10 yrs. ago. I was not able to be with him at that moment, but I have experienced many moments, since that night, when I feel his closeness. Funny thing, too...he was always rhyming(usually singing it)! I bet you were such a blessing in your father's life...especially when he needed you most. Congrats on your 10th place win! Ellen

    What a remarkable experience, Sara, feeling you father's spirit brush and hearing God speak as he passed away. I'm sure it was hard to write about this event, but your poem is breathtaking! Best wishes in Dr. Ram's contest, dear. Love, Carolyn

    It is so difficult to let go a loved one,not just we hold on to their memories but it's like they are always with us,watching us.I lost my younger sister,she was just 15 then.tough...Lots of love and good luck to you,Gautami

    A soul touching write, Sara. I feel sadness for you; this would have been a difficult time in your life. A poignant verse penned by your love and lingering thoughts. God's blessings to you and yours, Sara. Wishing you all the best! Love, Mikki

    It is hard to talk about this type of happening Sara, not least because changing circumstances throw a different light on our losses year on year, day by day even, we may find a facet of input missed in each different challenge we face, but if love is part of the recall we visit we will be strengthened within!
