Sad News

Daddy's daddy died yesterday.

We were expecting it, but still leaves a missing spot in one's life. I wrote the below poem for him (for his memorial book) and thought I would share it here too:

A whisper you may hear
late into the night.
That sound could be me
telling you sleep tight.

Across your sleeping face
a soft sigh may do.
Telling you once again
I'm thinking of you.

We all change directions
sometimes even roads.
But forever friends
is how it always goes.

To you my friend
always in my heart.
Forever together
and never apart.

I wish you peace and joy
and remembrance for years.
When we meet again
we need shed no tears.

Sorry about Daddy's daddy. Your husband just gained entrance to a club that no one wants to be a part of. I know, because I am a charter member.

Give extra hugs. He will need them.
