Rest Well Dad

In the early morning there you laid,
silenced by the last breathe you gave,
your mouth agape and eyes opened wide;
in that moment we could no longer deny
you had finally come to your end.

As we held your hands softly in the
quietness the moment finally settled in; we
painfully released tears deep from within
realizing  now nothing more of you remained;
no more struggles and no more pain.

Overcome from the memories we shared
the grief of losing you so hard to bear;
as we saw your vitality slowly stolen
all of your years came down to days;
what was given was terribly taken.

Even though you knew your eventual outcome,
you looked on life with a deep ponderance.
Exuding warmth and love was your essence;
words so profound yet simplistic in manner
touching others in an everlasting fashion.

Now comes the arduous task of moving on,
leaving all behind what was the past;
no choice now but for us to be strong.
I know deep inside that’s what you wanted
though the memories will still leave me haunted.

So, I’m leaving this place never to come back again;
too many memories that just brings up pain.
Carrying with me the ones that pleasantness brings,
your voice, your touch, your laughter and the such
knowing that I take the parts of you I loved so much.
