Hello Dad
I have been looking at your photograph again and thinking about you. Adam has a daughter now and I wonder if it was for us like it is for them. Adam dotes on Libbie and I hope that I brought you as much pleasure and love as she does for him. I always worshipped you. I knew you wanted a son so much and thought perhaps that I was a disappointment. I am hoping that for the first five years that I had you to myself we did have some loving times that perhaps I have forgotten now.
Love and miss you forever

Hello Dad,
I couldn't write on the site on your birthday this year. I sat and stared for ages, remembering things, but couldn't find the words. You are so important to me in my life. I love you more than you could ever have imagined. I hope that you are somewhere and not gone forever. I remember to keep the green bough in my heart like you said.

The Chair

It made me realise how much a person can change a room

It looked the same................Almost
Same three chairs, filled with all the same people. Same small wooden table under the same window. Same cabinet filled with the same glasses, ornaments and such.

It even smelled the same....Sunday dinners, and in Spring, which it was, the faintest tang of fresh cut grass.

But the difference.........Jesus

I can remember just standing there in the doorway, scared to go in. Scared. Can you believe it? Scared of entering the room where I'd spent some of my happiest times. Scared that by stepping over the threshold whatever had been taken from the soul of this room would be stolen from me for ever.

Thanks for the good times Grandad

Too Late

Too late for hugs and kisses now
Too late for holding hands
Too late for whispered words of love
Too late for making plans

But not too late for memories
Not too late for pride
Not too late for quiet thoughts
And feeling warm inside

Too late to hear your laughter now
Too late to ease your pain
Too late to have another chance
To share your life again

Too soon to let the heartaches go
Or grief to rise above
Too late to hold you in my arms
But not too late to love

For you Dad from Cath
