Gone -poem

Gone

IMG-20181022-WA0008

The sun is up today
so I gleefully  say
“This espresso I am having
is soothing and warming”.

I bet it’s from the blue mountain of Jamaica, Columbia, Guatemala or Java
it has a golden colored crema on top
and that robust flavor made me snap.

I felt a sweet lingering after taste
so I snag another cup in haste
**ensaymada is what I am having it with
“soft and delicate; buttery and grilled”.

It’s a sunny day today
as I take a sip, grab a bite and say
“Dad, it’s been really a long while
you’re way too gone but I miss you still”.

 

Note:

In memory of my father who has gone ahead of us to heaven.

**Ensaymada is a pastry product from Mallorca. It is a common cuisine eaten in most former Castilian territories in Latin America and the Philippines.

  5. That feeling doesn’t ever completely go away. My dad passed away 17 years ago and I still vividly recall like yesterday. Granted my heart has mended as much as it will, the wound is like the aches in our joints that some how sneak in.
    I know your dad is there watching over you with love and pride.❤️🤗

    This resonates with me. We have lost our father six years ago but I still miss him. It was his birthday last Saturday and it made me suddenly feel sad. Oh! I love Ensaymada!
