NOT LONG ENOUGH!!!
Moment before your walk that morning,
I realized the path ended so soon.
Not long enough to hold his hands,
this amazing person, this loving man.
Not long enough to engage his eyes and
remember his always brimming pride.
Not long enough to stand by his side,
as he was by mine after every rough tide.
Not long enough to laugh with him still,
after every bad joke, after every tough hill.
Not long enough to walk wiith this man,
who taught me to be the person I am…
Not long enough as I walked by his wife,
To thank them both for my wonderful life
In all the walks, I’ve taken in life, first as a
little boy and now as a young man,
I’ll remember that walk I took with my father,
And always wish it could be longer.
You will always be remember, Sleep on Dad.
