8 Years – aka, Remembering My Dad
Those who read my old blog will probably recognize this post. Today it is 8 years since my Dad died from lung cancer at the age of 51, 2 days after my 17th birthday.
My Dad loved dogs:
Part of Me
And are you gone now?
Cannot see you
Cannot reach you
Appearances were seen
in a never ending score
And I can make it on my own
would’ve liked you to be here
taking my hand
showing me the way
– one last time
And are you still here?
A part of me
A part of you
Make It Go – Kina Grannis
“Oh, no, I never showed you all my tears
’cause I don’t want it to be something that’s real
And I hoped that somehow my love might make it go
And I apologize for never showing I cared
But with all the fear and pain, I felt no words could compare
I was so wrong, it wasn’t strong not to share
The feelings in my heart, my nightmares, and the dreams that I bear
How could I, how could I go
Go so long and not let you know
That I’m so scared and so angry, too?
It’s so unfair, why did this happen to you?
