I still miss you
Memories come to my mind,
Sometimes for a fleeting moment,
But often they linger on,
Especially the memories of you.
For memories are all I have of you,
And with time, they say they fade away too.
But I’ll hold on, to every bit of them,
Though I know they are so few.
If only I could turn back time,
To when you were still here,
When you’d comfort me with a hug,
And drive away my every fear.
How you’d encourage me,
To be kinder and better each day,
How I wish you could come back,
And I’d get to see your smiling face!
I often wonder how different things would have been,
If you were still here, Dad,
Through the big and small moments of my life,
I wonder how you’d feel.
But I’d like to think you are always there with me,
It is just I, who can’t see!
And so you would know, Dad,
I still miss you, every single day!
18 years ago, on this day, I lost my Dad. I miss him everyday! From the time I started this blog, I write a poem dedicated to him every year on this day.
Thanks for reading.
It felt like I was reading about my mum. I lost her 19 years ago on 11th April. Hugs Reema.
Took me back to my memories with my Ma. What a lovely, evocative piece of writing.
Thank you for sharing. Prayers for you and yours. And for your Dad who watches over you always.
Love and light!
That is beautifully written…
I read this and related it to my grandfather. I miss him a lot. I lost my uncle to a great fire accident on April 11. The month of April still reminds me of the close people I have lost in my life.
Take care Reema. I have heard from so many people about how much they miss their father and it’s heartbreaking.. Whenever I fight with my parents, it is the stories of my friends that come to my mind. I still cannot think about a life without them. All I know is it’s not easy!
