I Thought of You Today
"I thought of you with love today but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
I think of you in silence; I often speak your name.
All I have are memories and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake with which I’ll never part.
God has you in His keeping; I have you in my heart."
Today is 4 mos since my dad died...Each 'first' event is harder than the next...his birthday and Father's Day...Easter...the beach. I have a hard time entering their house still...but I think Christmas will be the hardest EVER!
4 mos ago I was holding his hand...watching him take his last breath! I never witnessed anything like it, and my heart was SO heavy, but yet I KNEW deep down, he was eventually with God, in peace! I can still feel his hand, so cold...I can remember every minute of that last day with him. But what I remember most, are the memories...how a certain song can bring me back to such a great time. My family still mourns him, every single day...I knew this wouldn't be easy, but I was hoping we would be able to cope with it better by now.
Anyway, miss you dad...
