I’ve missed my father every day
The long years since he passed away
A man who gave us all he had
Who lived his love and died our Dad
But time shifts colors, light to shade
Our photographs begin to fade
The mem’ries we would most hold tight

Heart touching. Beautiful. An undeniable Love.
A sad and beautiful poem for your father. I know he would love those good words you have written for him.
Thank you, sir.

Oh, my … I had tears in my eyes … I missed my father too.
He has been and will always be my Hero … *love*
I have to ask… what exactly is going on in your photo?
Hah! Everyone asking me that? All of them. LOL
I told them I want to grow a moustache but it didn’t work. So I pasted one! 😛
Lol. It’s quite a conversation starter, that photo.
hahaha … My kids did asked what did I do to my own photo. I said Mommy want a moustache and they all shook their heads and I heard them saying … “I told you! Never stole her chicken. Momma will get weird for not eatin much.” LOL hahahaha … Kids!
Kids are the best.
Lovely tribute to your father, Owen.
Thanks, he would have been shocked given how badly I treated him when he was alive.
Beautiful, Owen. I miss mine too everyday and this is a beautiful reminder to spend some time in memory land. Thank you.
I’m glad. Holding on to memories gets harder.
Memories of those (including my own dad) who passed are like flavors of ice cream to me. I choose to indulge in those I love best and pass on the ones that should have never been created (usually those are memories I was not as kind and attending as I should have been…). Great love to you.
Twenty years tomorrow and I share your sentiment ❤️
