    I'll fly away!!!

    Thats what I heard them say.
    And I will never forget
    when my daddy flew away.

    It was the 23rd of a cold January day.
    The day he was born.
    The day he went astray.

    I can still see daddys big bluish gray brown eyes.
    His heart had stopped and panic had arised.
    As I stood there and watched without a clue of what to do
    I gently bent over into his mouth, I blew
    I blew for all the yesterdays when daddy held me close
    I blew for all the days when daddy wiped my nose
    I blew from my heart. I just couldn't let him go

    Thats when he opened his eyes
    as his heart grabbed a pace
    but what I saw was unmistaken
    Daddy was ready to fly away

    Daddy glowed
    He looked straight into my eyes
    he smiled a smiled I had never seen
    A peace from deep inside

    I looked at daddy and I too smiled back
    thats when we gently gave each other a nod
    He knew how much I loved him
    In every breath I blew, he felt my heart.

    Oneday, I too will fly away!
    Just let me glow like daddy did
    and may my children be a witness
    to this awesome, beautiful event.

    Just that last moment
    to show how much we love
    Then I can fly away in peace
    on the spirit of a dove.



    I know I am a bit early daddy.. I just couldn't hold this inside!

    HAPPY BORNDAY AND A PEACEFUL FLY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I MISS YOU AND I'LL LOVE YOU FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!

    :love: Thank you Brother Rich!
    The passing of a loved one can be such a traumatic experience for the family left behind. Sometimes I wonder, if just for that second, daddy came back so it wouldn't be that way for me. I find myself feeling sad when I think about him. But not for long, because I will never forget that smile. I know you know what I mean!

    Thank you for sharing that with me!!!! Now I'm smiling twice as wide!!!! :kiss1:

    Beautiful beyond belief Purple. When you witness a death that is peaceful, there is such a beauty in that, even though the sadness cannot be denied. My father's death, gee, it's almost been two years, was like that. This was quite touching poet, quite.

    I find it hard not to respond with warmth to your scribes. You don't post your work that often, and with your last two poems, you posted them in the quiet poetry lounge. No doubt that they are quiet and peaceful, but more would view them if they were in the other forum, and they are so well worth viewing sis. This has been on my mind, just had to mention it. Flow on.
