Final Day(s) ❤️

PopApril is not only “World Poetry Month”, it is also now the month for me losing my father. I knew it was coming – I just did not know it would be today. I wrote this in December of last year, but it seemed appropriate today.

He was a good man in many ways – he took good care of my mom, making sure during the first 25 years of her working for H&R Block, he would make and deliver her lunch, he always made sure her car was washed when she was going to a special event…provided well for his family.

They were married just over 61 years.

A chair pushed in
A place not set
Someone missed

Once a pillar of strength
Now a crumbling monument

Once a mighty man
Now weak
Almost in defeat

Curled into the corner
Trying to retain
To remain

Passed away 4/3/2018

One thought on “Final Day(s) ❤️”

  1. Since we never know when God says. That’s the last breath, we need to be ready for Him.
    Salvation by Grace is promised to all who believe and call upon His name. Being a sinner headed for a devil’s he’ll once, I can testify I know my Saviour, He’s a friend of mine.
