MISSING YOU DAD
WRITTEN BY NICHOLAS GARCIA
It doesn’t feel like it has been a year…
That you went away leaving us here….
I know that death isn’t a choice..
Despite the protest you may voice……
Maybe I’m selfish in a way…
But I miss you today…..
I know it was time for you to move on…..
But it’s so hard to believe you’ve gone….
If by chance you’re passing by….
Sorry there wasn’t time to say good-bye…..
If I can close with a verse that doesn’t rhyme…..
I LOVE YOU DAD….
This is poem I wrote after the first year of my dad’s passing.I believe I posted it on a web site for writers. The name alludes me at the moment. I believe it was something Dome. Pleasure Dome. Like that. Anyway, I felt it only fitting that I place it here.
It has been ten years since I wrote those words. A long time in the healing..I don’t think you ever quite get over it. You just learn to manage the feelings.There isn’t a day that goes by that he doesn’t come to mind. I am not sure when or how., because it wasn’t my doing. Somewhere along the way my mourning his death, my loss, changed to celebration of his life. and the time I was able to share it with him……
