Wandering With Words

Random musings of a reckless soul.



Not a day passes by

When you don’t cross my mind

If I knew what was to happen

The day you passed away

I’d take the time to tell you

All the things I needed to say

I never got to tell you

How much you mean to me

I’d have hugged you tight

And seen your precious smile

I never got to tell you

How sorry I am

For all the wrongs of my life

For all the times I hurt you, dad

I often sit in silence

And think about you

I miss you a lot

In moments of joy

But I miss you more

When I am weak

I stay strong all day

But at night I weep

        When I have no one to reach

I gaze at the sky

Then I fall asleep

There are so many things

That reminds me of you

Your memories that I hold

Are more precious than gold

They say time’s a healer

I know that is true

But it’s been 1095 days

And dad, I still miss you.

    • Hi. I do feel a little awkward when people offer condolences. I am sincerely grateful for it but I guess I just don’t know what to say in return!
      What you did here actually made me smile! I wonder if you realise the power of your gesture! It not only did make feel better but also instilled hope. Hope for humanity.
