    "By way of pretext I said; "I will go and check the condition of the White picket fence", but it was really to see you."
    ---Rudyard Kipling---

    "Where were you when I was burned and broken
    While the days slipped by from my window watching
    Where were you when I was hurt and I was helpless
    Because the things you say and the things you do surround me
    While you were hanging yourself on someone else's words
    Dying to believe in what you heard
    I was staring straight into the shining sun
    Lost in thought and lost in time
    While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted
    Outside the rain fell dark and slow
    While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistable pastime

    I took a heavenly ride through our silence
    I knew the moment had arrived
    For killing the past and coming back to life
    ---David Gilmour---

    The years are flying by
    Yet it was only "yesterday"
    That I heard you say you love me
    Our last goodbye was years ago
    But I still feel your embrace
    Night times are the worst...but best
    because in dreams I see your face
    smiling at me
    In life you were my mentor
    In death you remain the same
    You are a hero unbeknownst to most
    because of lack of fame
    But to me you are most famous
    You are the gear which drives the machine
    of my life
    I miss you Dad


    For my father Loren Kyle Phelps 4/24/1935 to 07/01/2005

    I lost my Dad just 3 months before you, a poem more true could not be found.

    nice posts, very sad stuff:

    think of life like a picture
    a lonesome lullaby
    when you run out of dreaming
    you will surely die

    - a song I wrote
