    where did u go
    u could have said goodbye!
    now runs da tears
    from my eyez
    u should have said bye

    U left me so fast
    didn't give me tyme
    to say a word
    to let u know how i feel
    tell u what's da deal
    u just left
    far too soon

    why did u have to go
    left me wit a gurl & boy
    to grasp in ya honor
    to hold as u would
    i sit alone late at night
    look to da skies
    wishing to da twinkle lights
    u left me too soon

    I miss more & more
    my heart looms
    my words get low
    my soul empty too

    what can a lonely
    father do!?

    u gone too soon
    didn't let me say a word
    just closed ya eyez
    without a goodbye
    but i know some day
    i will fly beside u
    get my place ready
    i be their coz i'm ya daddy

    my tears of rivers runs deep
    even when i'm asleep
    my cast of life move me on
    yet i'm missing my oldest one
    first born

    my emotional state has me low
    my pen drip blood
    my flow maybe no mo !
    too much stain
    da scar too deep
    many nights losing sleep
    i try as i reach
    i whisper da speech
    i ask thee
    da words he spoken is for me
    a silent prayer given
    a loving touch taken
    but nothing can recount that day

    my heart has been taken under da sword
    my battle undone
    da war ended
    yet i have to fight on
    dis may be it.................not sure
    :(

    some say laughter is the best medicine. i think not. luv is the best medicine. what else serves as such a tonic 4 both the giver & the recipient?

    this was heartfelt. thanks rich.

    Goodbye was never said
    because it wasn't goodbye
    when you look into the eyes of your grandchildren
    you'll see him
    when you look at the pictures
    you'll see him
    when you circulate the memories thru your mind
    you'll see him
    he's there with you
    it will never be goodbye
    only I'll catch up with you later....
