My father passed peacefully on January 10th 2021, Sunday at sunset
For all the birthdays we have celebrated through the years, today will remain the most treasured. Happy 83rd Birthday Dad
In a crowded room of yesteryears
Scared and unsure is a look I’ve never seen on him before
the flutter of your butterfly kisses
“Who is that old man in the mirror?” dad asked as he looked up with a crooked half smile.
…Everyday I see him I say “I love you” because tomorrow is always uncertain.
The smokey Mountains are beautiful.
Even on the worst days there are the best moments.
This baby face I have never kissed but know so well as it is one I grew up alongside and then again held as my own.
