    Suddenly something happens
    your whole world looks different
    leaving you feeling anything but indifferent
    some quick blow that reminds you
    of all the things you ought to do
    of all the things that you have to say
    before those important go away
    my friends father has passed
    children never think their parents won't outlast
    and then so suddenly it ends
    and you're left alone to contend
    wondering when the pain will end
    my father and I have become best friends
    going to basketball games, playing ball
    can't even think about ever receiving that call
    tears well up and then spring forth
    will my father know how much I think he's worth
    will he know how much i love him
    it would be like a phantom limb
    always reaching out to hold him near
    how would i ever persevere?
    after counting to ten i pick up the phone
    and dial a number thats always been home
    "daddy its your baby girl,"
    i think about how my hair he'd curl
    "Sunday the Knicks play the Cavaliers
    ya want to go see LeBron and jeer?"
    "Baby girl, you and me, MSG, it's a date."
    "I promise daddy I won't be late.
    Love you"

    I took care of my dad the last l0 years of his life
    better I lived with my dad..he lived with me
    and in that time I discovered
    someone so special in my life..someone so
    non judgemental, so giving , so loving..
    Enjoy him now..laugh and have the fun..
    learn much . have no regrets and only feel
    the goodness of your soul...if/when
    because you take the time to know someone
    so different than when you''re three..


    Nice piece...flooded me with memory...
    and i'll be at that game too...lebron i want to see
    but i hope the knicks when and make me feel happy

    Thanks for the responses, a bitter sweet day. Sad when it takes the apssing of a life to remind us how important others are. Deepy, catch you at the game - I'll be screaming at I. Thomas to trade Kurt. They should have gotten Rasheed Wallace, d*mn Pistons. Anyway 6 outta the last eight games ain't bad either. Playoff contention baby, its about time!

    Made me think of my dad...To have a dad in your life, not just a father, is a blessing.
