A Letter To My Dad

Rating: 5.0
Dad it's been twenty years,
since you have been gone now
when ever I think of you
the thought, brings tears

There's so much to tell
you, I don't know where to begin
two months, after you died
we had a son, he's so big now, I'm in a spell
I wanted for you, to meet my wife,

A very open and heartbreaking poem to your obviously much missed Dad. I'd guess he would have been very proud and happy to have read these very fine words. It takes bottle to write and post this kind of searing honesty jim. I really appreciate it. jim

Jim, this was a very good write. It was a beautiful letter to your father. Reminded me of a poem I wrote for my Dad. It was beautiful how you wanted to share so much with him. It is strange the things we remember and even all the time that was wasted. I too began to understand only some of the things about my father perhaps within a couple of years before he passed. I have to say, Shep, was quite a dog as I read your writing on him. This was a very good write and that perhaps the things we didn't get to do with our parents instilled in us to be better towards our own children. Sorry for your loss.....I did enjoy this letter.
