28th November my own Rememberance Day



Time it eases heartache,

the memories always remain,

Of smiles , fun and laughter

and playing in the rain.

I still feel your arms around me,

a place where I was free

to be just a little girl

who sat upon your knee.

Thirty three years ago you left me,

You were lying so quiet and still,

when Grandad kissed your lifeless cheek

I prayed with all my will.

Gone from mortal life,

I waited for your return,

but Dad you never came home again,

the years, they slowly moved on.

In the darkest of my hours,

in desperate times of need,

I remember being that little girl

who sat upon your knee.

I still miss you Dad x

Baby M...I never got to say goodbye but you are with me always.

I've never really lost a loved one, not in that way.

Beautiful sentiments though.

Hope all is well with you :)

How sad to have lost your father as a little girl, although I was only 17 when mine died and by his own hand.

I'm sure you will never forget him and this is a lovely tribute.
