In Memory of my Father
My family lost a Great
the days passed by,
The months soon came to an end
And the years flew by
Like the birds in the sky.
Still I couldn't accept it
After the funeral
And several years went by,
I realized my Father was truly gone.
Never to return to me on these lonely nights
When I need a father's helping hand.
Never to see me grow,
Or hear the bells on my wedding day,
Or see the sight of a smile on his grandchild's face.
But I realized he put his life on the line to protect me,
Not wanting to lose me
But in the end it was I who lost him.
