Father's Day (For Carmel Azzopardi) - Poem by LeeAnn Azzopardi

This is the third Father's Day
Since yr absence
And still the pain hasn't left
Though, it's smaller than before
It aches in my soul like an unquenchable fire
And to see you once more
Even for a little while
It would still burn
Though, the flames never extinguish
I cannot let go of the memories
They haunt my dreams
Some people can carry on without a tear
I imprisoned with solitude
And in my thoughts, yr smile
Still exist
I want to meet you again
I hope sooner than later

    Reading this I think of my poppy who passed away over a decade ago, it was painful to realize I would never see him again. I understand whole heartedly what it is like, the sentiments are beautiful and sad, your articulation is perfect. It resonates a lot, a great fathers day poem LeeAnn, I think you captured it perfectly. (Report)Reply
