I'm back

Jemmie,

Since my father's death I have been writing a lot about that... after I posted my last comment I thought of this poem... It is more to say that I know how you feel (loss wise)... I hope it isn't inappropriate for me to post it here.

and we find ourselves orphans
at 36, 54, 27...
3
we find ourselves fatherless,
weeping unknown tears,
pushing out water to rid ourselves of the pain of being at last
alone

and we forget at moments
what it was like to be loved
not because you had his eyes or smile
but because this being had built his life around you like a shelter
a warm blanket
cool water

and we remember in sharp stabs and wonder
how it came to pass that you were orphaned at 37
find yourself alone amidst a world you never looked at before
with these searching eyes

how we are left with a pat on the head
"Here you go, kid. Do your best."
and start to live the life of an orphan
alone
 
so much love to you,
Metta

my father did not die young, 74, but those firsts are the hardest things... he died 14 days before my birthday and it was hard... but the night of my birthday he called me (in my dream) and wished me a happy birthday and told me that he loved me and he would call me back... this was 8 months ago... I'm waiting for that call.

oh hugs to you... Metta

You will do something to mark his birthday. I always do for my dad who also died too young
