My Story

Instead of writing about my fathers life, that had it's good times and it's bad times.
I felt this Irish poem is how he would want us to remember him.

I'M STILL HERE, please don't mourn for me I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day and within your heart I long to stay. My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear. My spirit is free, but I'll never depart as long as you keep me alive in your heart.
I'll never wander out of your sight- I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach- I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.
I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond, the clear cool water in a quiet pond.
I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring, the first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine, and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.
When you start thinking there's no one to love you, you can talk to me.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees, and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.
I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face. Just look for me, I'm everyplace!
