A Letter For My Pop

© Sarah A Keech
Poppy,
I donít know what to say or how to feel.
Iím just so lost.....I miss you so much I canít put it into wordís.
You are such a strong person, a rock in my life.
Even now that you arenít here to share my life with me,
you are imbedded into my heart,
still beating deep within me,
feeling your heart beat with mine.
The pain hasnít gotten any easier!
You are in our hearts and minds so deep that the tears never end........
you touched so many hearts.
I want to give you such a huge, tight hug and never let go, ever!
I want to tell you I love you,
to say sorry for not being there as much as I should have.
Oh there is so much I want to talk about........
I canít help but go to all the places where you and I used to go,
bringing back all these memories, I love it, but it just makes me miss you more.
I donít ever want to forget you,
please donít leave my thoughts like you left my life.
Melissa misses you so much.
She has her bad days, as do I.
We go and see you, and she cries so hard my heart breaks.
I will never forget the many great times we had, I canít forget.
You were the best Person I have ever known.
You were my best friend, my poppy, my confidant, my rock.
The thingís you said, always put a smile on my face.
In fact, you did everyone you knew.
I just want to scream!!!!
If God granted wishes, I would wish you back in an instant.
When you left us that day, I hated everyone and everything.
They all kept on going as if nothing had happened, how dare they not know!!
I was 7 months pregnant so I held heaps back..........Until now.
God took you from us on the 7th of March 2007. 12 months ago.
You had a heart attack.
I love you so much Poppy.
Nothing will ever change that.
I miss you more than I can ever explain.
Rest in Peace My dearest, dearest Poppy.
