One year later.
So true. My mom lived to be 94, and it wasn't enough. Be gentle with yourself today.
Such a beautiful poem
May his memory be a blessing
This is a beautiful poem ❤️ My father also died on 4 September, three years ago, in a similar room with me at his side. Tonight I will drink a glass of his favourite red wine, play jazz on the radio and make the only meal he ever cooked (pizzas!). He was lovely and kind with a wry sense of humour. It sounds like your dad was very lovely also, I’m sorry you have lost him, it’s never enough time.
A beautiful poem for your father
Man, this hit me... Never enough indeed... I’ve lost a lot of important people too soon, either I was too young or they were, but is there ever a good time to lose a parent, to lose a child? Your poem is beautiful. It’s good to mark these anniversaries. Thank you for sharing it with us. I subscribed to your newsletter around this time last year and it’s been lovely following along this journey with you.
I'm hugging you in my heart right now.
What a lovely tribute. I lost my father too young-he was 55 and I was 32-and still miss him.
A beautiful poem and tribute.
A wonderful tribute.
Beautiful -- the photo, too.
I’m sure he loves this poem too ❤️❤️
Beautiful. And I'm sorry. And this is definitely not a sestina (not at all), but I'm thinking of you and your family and sending love.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful poem. There truly is never enough time. I have lost both of my parents. My father passed when I was carrying my youngest child, my mother in 2019, and in 2020 our own daughter. We continue to gather with family and friends on her birthday to share memories, tell stories, and celebrate what an amazing human she was. Again, thank you for sharing your story.
As someone who just observed 2 yarsheits z"l back to back ~ your words truly hit home. My father lived till 92.. My mother till 93, and it was NOT enough in some ways. May your father's name forever be your blessing.
How lovely. Thank you for this post
never enough time----my pop passed n 2005--feel the same, never enough and always too soon. thanks for this lovely memory of your dad............. and mine who died in sept.---
