I Miss You

20191228_070533

oblivious of the time

and around

I longed for your

hold so tight

your hold that keeps my steady

gaze in place

your hold that once made a

better me

incognizant of how I felt

wanting how much of you

I can take

I never imagined it would be

this dark without you

the darkness that seemed to

topple down my soul

the darkness I once ignored

for you are there

holding closely as I fear

It seems just a while

but no, it’s been a long while

a long while

since you walked away

unnoticed

it numbed my mind

froze my heart

I can’t take you out of

my life

I need to touch you again

I need to hold you close in

my arms

I miss you that’s what

I wanna say

I love you, I want you

to stay

It’s been ten years dad

ten years and I am mad

‘cos I can’t have you back

 

You will be 70 years old today dad, i hope your having a birthday blast in heaven. ❀❀❀

    All of us who have lost a beloved one can relate.
    That photo conveys the emotion in your poem. Beautiful duo…photo and poem.

    happy birthday Mich Papa, love and peace upon your soul, with a loving Father in Heaven waiting at heaven’s door for his beloved children, one day eternity will join our families together again, knitted with the longing you expressed so deeply and intensely here. Your words have a deep effect on me too Mich just like all your readers we honour this special day for your dad. I too felt time torn away form me and the darkness has never been this heavy. You have my love and blessings today and everyday dear friend.

    A touching tribute to your late father – taken too soon from earth at age 60! I am sure he is having a blast in Heaven and having tons of friends, looking over you too. It is great when you have had such a strong daughter and father relationship. Blessings and chin up as he still loves up, from up above πŸ™‚

        Wala namang makakarinig nang pagtangis.
        Tahimik at banayad na umaagos ang mga luha.
        Sa paraang ito, naiibsan ang sakit at pangungulilang dulot.
