Happy Angelversary, Brooks

The way I miss you is different now
I don't think about forever
I just don't know how
I miss your face, your laugh, your smile
It seems like a lifetime
Though it’s just been a while

It’s been a year since I heard the news
That Oh so terrible day
I never thought I’d lose you
Now just in my dreams I still hear you say
I love you, Dad, and I would say…you too

I miss you so much
There's a hole in my heart
I just wish we could have lived our lives
Not ever having to be apart
I've given up wishing you'd come back to fill that hole
But I gratefully know God has taken your soul

I know you’re gone
I just wish I'd known
So that the last time I spoke with you
I could have kept you on the phone
I'd have told you even more how much I loved you
And how forever I'd know your smile
And how I didn't think I could live without you…not even for a while

Although you’re gone and out of sight
You’re definitely not out of mind
You've flown away and not through choice
You left us all behind

I hope you can see me
Always sitting at your grave
Knowing you are now free
For God’s love he did you save

But like I said it's been a year
And it’s ever safe to say
A year of heartache…many a tear
But now my death I do not fear
For you will be waiting
With arms open wide
And our lives will begin anew

Thank you, Ann. It's a little ironic that you commented today. I'm currently creating a video celebration for my mother-in-law who passed on Monday, and as I look for photos I see all the memories of my son with her. It makes me cry like it just happened, but I smile too for they are very precious memories. Thank you again for taking the time to read my poem and comment.

The love between a parent and child is the strongest love of all. So glad you have faith that you will be reunited. A beautiful prayer.
