In Loving Memory of my Father, James Nathaniel Gelsey
I wasn't ready to let you go, but your departure from me, you knew,
You said your goodbyes with such joy, I thought,
tomorrow, I'll be visiting you.
You gave me your time, your food for thought,
just like you did for all times,
But it was how you tried to prepare me,
for you had heard your heavenly chimes.
If you could have spared me the grief I'm now feeling,
like buckets of water to my floor,
You would have said it, before you left us,
My loving daughter, cry no more.
It was the day before thanksgiving, you wanted to see my mother,
It was a day that brought such joy,
with our family like no other.
You were very tired after the holiday visit,
you tried to see everyone that day,
If I had known it was our last time together,
perhaps I could have said to you all I ever wanted to say.
The days and weeks after sped by,
Thanksgiving and December followed,
Then January, when I anticipated such new beginnings,
instead, I became shocked and hollowed.
I thought about all I could have given you,
had I had just been given the chance,
Now I'm left with what you would want me to do,
As I see you peer in from heaven's windows at glance.
I see your smiles of eternal joy,
and your request within the wink of your eye,
Your one wish that you're seeming to now ask of me,
"My darling daughter, for me, don't you cry."
"I now know all the times you wished to visit. The photos taken that you wish you were in,
The time you longed to have with me,
The days with me you wished to spend."
"Our time apart is just temporary. I now have this joyous Heaven to explore,
So until we meet again my little girl,
my dear daughter, cry no more."
