Through the years

Through the good and the bad

…. my defiance or need to lean

…. my triumphs and times of pride

…. my indiscretions and shame

…. my sadness or joy

…. my forgiveness and acceptance

…. my anger or happiness

…. my ignorance and hard-learned wisdom

…. your pain and mine

Through our journey, separate or together, you were and always will be… my dad.

For all the birthdays we have celebrated through the years, today will remain the most treasured. Happy 83rd Birthday Dad57DE6C27-54D7-49B9-ACFB-F286FC84DF6F

    An amazing tribute to your dad and I feel certain he knows how special it is to have you as his daughter. Thank you for your beautiful poem. I know how difficult it can be. My own dad has dementia and just turned 96 but I see him fade and lose a little more with each passing day. I am thankful he still knows me when I call. Being there for him is the most wonderful gift you can give.
