Or was that a brush of your gentle hand upon my shoulder
To remind me that you are here with me tonight
The image of your face is slowly fading
As I had wilfully blocked you out
For your image just brought me too many tears
But now I am scared you're too diminished
And I don't want your light extinguished forever
From within the depths of my inner being
But know I love you forever, Dad
When I sat beside your bed
You seemed unconscious and unresponding
I held your arm and I kissed your hand
I so selfishly wanted you to stay and be with us
You reached out and stroked my hair
That's when I knew you love me
But was too tired to even utter the words
So, I had to reassure you that you could let go
If that was what you needed to do
And now, I feel bad that I had told you so
Before Mom was ready ..she said I should't have ...
Tell me you're ok where u are and it's where you want to be
That's the only way I am going to feel better....
I so wish to swing by heaven's door
To catch another glimpse of you......
