Remembering My Dad Today!

Three years have passed and I would love to say that the pain of losing my Dad has passed as well. I would love to say that, but I can’t. He is as much on my mind today, as he ever was when he was alive. 

I found a few poems today as I was searching around the Internet that I wanted to share in the hope of raising not only my own spirit, but that of those who also loved my father so much and miss him terribly each and every day.

IN MEMORY OF MARIO

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be.

So He put His arms around you and whispered “come to me.”

With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away.  

Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.  

A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest.

God broke our hearts to prove to us,

He only takes the best.

 

WE REMEMBER YOU

At the rising of the sun and at its going down, We remember you.

At the blowing of the wind and the chill of winter, We remember you.

At the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of spring, We remember you.

At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer, We remember you.

At the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of autumn, We remember you.

At the beginning of the year and when it ends, We remember you.

As long as we live, you too will live; for you are now a part of us, as we remember you.

When we are weary and in need of strength, We remember you.

When we are lost and sick at heart, We remember you.

When we have joy we crave to share, We remember you..

When we have decisions that are difficult to make, We remember you.

When we have achievements that are based on yours, We remember you.

As long as we live, you too will live; for you are now a part of us, as we remember you.

 

LONGING FOR ONE MORE DAY

When we lose someone we love it seems that time stands still. What moves through us is a silence… a quiet sadness… A longing for one more day… one more word… one more touch… We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget. We will see you again some day, in a heavenly place where there is no parting. A place where there are no words that mean good-bye.

 

LOVING AND REMEMBERING YOU ALWAYS DAD, ESPECIALLY TODAY!

YOUR SON, DAN

P.S. Angela and I are still looking for a name for baby girl #3, so if you have any ideas, please send them my way! :)
