Will The Memories Survive?


Published by Family Friend Poems January 2012 with permission of the Author.

One week ago I got the hardest news
I've ever had to hear,
My friend, My hero, My Dad
Had died aged just 43 years.

I've never felt so alone
In all my years alive,
I didn't understand it
And wondered how I'd survive.

Then I thought about
Jaime's, Steph and Jess,
And just how they were coping
In this heart breaking mess.

I thought about your grand-kids
And the fact they'd never know,
The gentle man their Poppy was
Or how much you loved them so!

I thought about all you'd miss
With every milestone that we made,
And I pray with every bone in my body Dad
The memories I have will never fade.

I hope that you're beside me
When I walk down the aisle,
I hope that when it happens
I've made you proud enough to smile.

I hope that you've got Kynie with you
And I hope you both can see,
Just how much you meant to us
Just how much you mean to me!!!

I know that in the life I lead
You will always be a part,
I know I will never forget you
And you will always be in my heart.

Every day for the rest of my life
You will be in my thoughts,
And not a moment will pass
Where I won't wish this memory was somehow yours.

I love you with all my heart Dad
And will miss you every day for the rest of my life
I hope that you have found peace in heaven
And I hope I'm strong enough to survive.
