Four Years

Enough time has passed
Though it seems yesterday
Four years you’re gone
When will I adjust?

Beacon, supporter, loving strength
You were all these
And more to me
Your absence is blinding

Nothing … is the same
Holidays, birthdays, trips home
Winter, spring, summer, fall
My world stopped then

To hear your voice
Give and receive hugs
See your twinkling eyes
Taste favorite comfort foods

Oh how I wish
I had these again
Even for a day
Visit in my dreams


♥ I miss you, Daddy!!

    What a loving paean to your Dad! Bless you and comfort you in your sweet memories shared so unselfishly here today, dear Becca!

    Your love for him pours out of you and reaches many more than your beloved father. Beautiful!

    I remember now that your father died the same year as my mom. She died four years ago on January 17th and one never stops missing them. Someone told me once it does’nt get better, it just gets different with the passing of the years. Thank you for sharing, Becca.

    Jen’s grandfather’s birthday was yesterday. You could have written that for him. 🙂

    Aww, Becca, this is so sad 😦 I love the picture of you dad. Mine is 82 now and I know that I will be facing this one day probably sooner than later. Well done poem. Blessings, Terri
