Pieces of My Dad

Yesterday made it a year since you've been gone My heart still hurts like it happened last week I remember the good times with a warm smile Then the reality hits me in the face, it hurts deep I look around my room at the pieces you left behind The tall clock that you loved to brag about, that I adore The painting of the woodsy scene that leads to a beach Reminds me of our special times together at the coast A fun day of antiquing with a special seafood lunch You loved to take me on the scenic ocean drive We admired all the historic mansions along the way I wish I could go back in time, and relive that day I can still remember your voice calling my name I hope that memory stays strong, never fades Every room has pieces and memories of you As I look at them, enjoying them so bittersweetly

Oh my you made my heart weep today dear girl. I used to adore my dad and when he died, I pinned an angel on his lapel in his coffin. A symbol of what he was to me all my life. I do understand all to well that feeling. You are fortunate to carry with you so much good memories. May they keep you and hold you as you go through your grief. Nice to hear from you, Stay in touch, these days it means so much xo

You are so blessed to have such wonderful memories and treasured items that you cherish. Nearly 6 years since my dad died and neither mum nor I have grieved, but so be it. Thinking of you hugs jan xx

So many lovely memories of your father. I was more attached to my mother though. Great tribute, none-the-less. ~~

This is a genuine feeling in words... very beautiful and gently reflective, a whisper of your heart that softly tears up... God bless you with comfort... Love and prayers, Gina
