Every day I grieve just a little
Sometimes, from no where apparent, the tears fall
Sometimes I smile with an unspoken memory
Of a long ago time spent together

Who would have thought you would have left so soon
No words were needed, I was there
I still hear your voice as you say my name
Though now it is heard with my heart

Everyday I'm still touched by your love
When no one is looking my tears fall
Everyday I grieve just a little
Missing a long ago time, now spent forever

------- Author's Notes -------

I will always miss my dad.

Always in my heart

This poem has touched me so much. It will be 12months in May since my father died and each day I stil grieve, but he's always in my heart.

"I still hear your voice as you say my name
though now it is heard with my heart"

Oh how I relate to those lines.

A very moving poem Becky, that has certainly touched my heart today

I remember

When we first got the news last year, I was heartbroken for you. The lost of a loved one, especially a family member, can have a strong effect on a person. But sometimes people go to their loved one's funeral without shedding a tear. I couldn't do it. It's very tragic that your father wasn't well enough to live another year. Very nice tribute and dedication in honoring your father. Truly by reading this, your father was a very special man.
Very good and poignant writing Dreamer!
Take care,

these warm words have great meaning to my soul..

Remember...his love is forever embraced in a strangers smile, in every passing cloud, every falling star,every rainbow,every snowflake,every drop of rain, in the moonlight, in every sunrise & sunset..his love lives on in the center of your heart..he is the very part of your soul..and in life itself...touchin' read..Terrie* ( -- Tuesday, October 31 2006, 11:16 am

Still in my dreams

I am sorry for your sad loss. My Dad had been youthful and healthy when he died suddenly after a fall. That was my first loss of a family member, and it was a terrible shock.

Your poem is very beautiful and touching. I think that your Dad must be proud of his daughter.
