When everything else fails

20131228_173054

When everything else fails

I will run away and sail at the

ocean so wide;

but I can’t, for you can’t

run away with me.

 

When everything else fails

I wanted to cry, cry till my tears

run dry;

but I can’t, for you can’t

cry along with me.

 

When everything else fails

I wanna shout out loud

till my lungs find its highest pitch;

but I can’t, for you can’t

shout out along with me.

 

When everything else fails

I sure will laugh it off,

laugh like tomorrow may not come;

but I can’t, for you can’t

laugh with me.

 

When everything else fails

I want you to hold me,

hold me so tight;

but I can’t, for you can’t

hold me anymore.

 

it’s been five years dad;

and I still miss you.

p.s.

It’s been a tough day…this is the moment when I wish I have my dad beside me saying ” everything will be fine”.

nothing beats my dad’s big hug….its comforting…

  1. I remember my dad with pride. He was one of the last members of WWII’s Guadalcanal Campaign. He was never ” Father of the Year ” material, but we never lacked for food, water, fresh / clean clothes, etc.
    He was one of the members of ” The Greatest Generation ” as Tom Brokaw called it. Not a hero, but a good man.

  2. A lovely tribute. Losing one you love is never easy. I lost my father and eleven months later my daughter died. For a very long time, I just felt so very numb. Peace!

  3. Very touching! In my case, it’s been 15 years since my dad left us. But not a day goes by when I don’t remember him. My Poetry is his everlasting gift to me, God bless his soul! May your dad continue to smile down on you from that never-ending paradise. May God bless his soul!

  4. It is a moving and deep poem… I am sure writing it helped you keep the best memories alive, and that´s something already quite priceless… sending love & wishing you happy holidays! ⭐
