In Memory of my Dad...a personal tribute to my dad

August 2, 2001 my father lost his short battle with cancer. Seven years and it still feels like yesterday to me. If you are fortunate to have your father, take time to let him know he is loved while you still can.

If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane,
id walk right up to heaven and bring you home again

If being brave would bring you back and rewind seven years
I would face my insecurities and all of my fears
and take a step backward to where we once were
so I can let you know no matter how long the time
I will always be your girl

Missing your beautiful blue eyes , your gentle voice and your caring way.


  1. 7 years isn't long enough to dim the pain of loss. Thanks for the little thought and poem about your dad.
