BE STRONG
Be strong,
This one's for you.

Wherever you go and whatever you do,
Remember my smile,
Not what I went through.

Be strong,
This one's for you.

Whenever you think of me,
Try not to cry.
You meant the world to me,
Made my life worthwhile.

Be strong,
This one's for you.

You know that I loved you,
And I love you still.
Though I'm dead and gone,
you know I always will
Be Strong,
This one's for you.

Great tribute to your Dad, Kevin.

(no words)


We little humans, hurtling through the Universe on our tiny, pale blue dot, will find few answers to Life's great mysteries. But we should at least find many of the questions. To write is to ask. To seek. To grope. With humility, and humor. Peace.

Very profound and filled with love.

"Time is
Too slow for those who Wait,
Too swift for those who Fear,
Too long for those who Grieve,
Too short for those who Rejoice,
But for those who Love
Time is not."
-Henry Vandyke (1852-1933)


"Only Silence I hear."

Thanks Francis, James and Zuzanna. We're going to have this poem put on his grave next Monday, on a little plinth. It was his favourite of all my poems.

Beautiful sentiment written in beautiful words. A wonderful balance of strength and love. Thank you for sharing.
