A poem about my Dad’s passing.

This has been a difficult time for me with my Dad passing on Memorial Day! Very fitting seeing he was a war hero. I wrote this to explain how I feel now…there is hope at the end!


There is a knowing in the wind

I have lost and become shelled

I can see the reasons I grieve

Easy right?


Not when a thousand memories re-surface

To remind you that you are still a child

You have not grown in awhile

You are like a swamp…always expanding.


Negative thoughts

Give rise to negative actions

Don’t be fooled

They are here now….


You may be a fool for a bit…

Until the waves lap over you finally

I don’t mean death…

I mean life…look forward for God’s sake.
