My father

Back to the moment i saw my father for the first time in 5 years after his death.

A flawed perfect man

Then it struck,
'In this dreadful dream, I am forever stuck'.
Yes, gone he was.
'My world!' , I gasped.
'The world, my world that once was,
is but no more!'
could he, 'really' be gone?.

A great many things he was,
but a better father, none!
A flawed, perfect being, true.
"hardship, pain and sorrow are 'll but a phase,
only a passing phase son"
I recalled, half expecting his cold lips to budge,
but the bridge had been crossed.
Yes, gone he was.

and so I waited,
yet the "phase" remains stubborn in its ugliness.


Death, Faith, Family, Father, Life, Love, Pain, Rest In Peace, Sorrow
