    to my Dad who has left here to be with God

    as you know
    and can see- everyone's fine...
    had to adjust my perspective...
    life, rather than death, is more selective..
    and it chose you recently...
    you left here decently so that l awake peacefully
    to the affection of dawn,
    the protection of calm in my soul
    the breath of Christ takes full control so that
    even as l am fractioned by your departure, l am whole.

    how can l go on
    how can l take it
    you know l can make it b/c of the examples you set for me
    you helped set me free...
    you said "no life support, just please, let me be."
    ...
    and to think that we live life worried about things
    until someone close to us leaves
    and it's like, that doesn't matter...
    not the evil men do and say
    not the sin we do each day...
    all l want to do after l pray, is try.. is live

    my father, what l wouldn't give to hear your voice again
