My Guardian Angel - Poem by Keli Mims

If Heaven wasn't so far away,
I'd go see you tomorrow for Father's day.
Tell you how I've missed you,
And how I love you too.
I'd cry my eyes out as we talk,
Tell you all my worries as we walk.
Its the days like this when I realize,
It's been forever since I've cried.
I realized it's been days since I've wrote,
But it's not like you'll get this note.
I guess I write so just in case you some how see,
That you still mean so much to me.
I don't cry so I can stay Strong,
Strong for the girls, strong for mom.
I pretend I don't feel all the pain I do,
All this pain of missing you.
Days like this when it's all about Dad,
And I have to remember the one I once had.
The one I no longer get to hug or even see,
The one who was taken from us suddenly.
You think by now the numbness would still be there,
But no, it's now replaced by a feel, a need for tears.
Everyone says they have the best dad but they don't see,
The best dad is the one I have watching over me.
My very own guardian angel.

    Keli- I love this poem. My dad died of cancer twenty years ago and six months later my mom also died of cancer. I miss them and also feel as if they were both watching over me.
    It seemed as if they were both fine and then all of a sudden they both got cancer and died.
    Just today I was taking a walk and thinking about my parents and even though we had our disagreements we used to all have fun together.
    My dad was a good dad too. I have been very sick most of my life, diagnosed with schizophrenia and hospitalized when I was only 14 and I feel as if it would be great if they were watching over me and seeing how much better I am now. my 56th birthday is next Saturday and I know they are in heaven to celebrate with me.
    Thanks again Keli for sharing a beautiful poem that touched my heart-
    Best wishes,
    Claudia
