I remember...

I remember being a little kid,

and getting up in his lap.

 

I remember his quietness,

and the way he laughed.

 

I remember his power,

his might, and his strength.

 

I remember the way his beard,

used to tickle when I kissed him on the face.

 

I remember his smile,

and his brain.

 

I remember his love,

I remember his huge heart.

 

I remember his voice,

and the way he loved to talk.

 

I remember his stories,

of growing up.

 

I remember his life,

and I remember the day he died.

 

I remember being told,

while sitting in my room.

 

I knew he'd been sick,

but I didn't think he'd be taken so soon.

 

It's been four years now,

but it still hurts.

 

I'll see you again some day,

at those pearly gates.

 

but for now remember,

I love you.

Yep, still makes me cry... even after reading it over and over again. That's a powerful pen you're weilding, sweets... no joke. He was an amazing man, and I see a lot of him in you. The quiet reserve, the determination, the family values... you've inherited those, just to name a few. He'd be so proud of you, sis. ♥ and Hugs!

Memories can go far to keep, with us, love ones no longer with us. Fine tributes like this go further still.

Thank you

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
