Reminiscing Regrets.

27 Apr

I opened my eyes and there you were

Standing, smiling, looking at me.

I closed my eyes and opened it again

Just to make sure

It’s not just a figment of my imagination.

But when I opened my eyes

I realize it was just delusion

I was dreaming, yet it seemed so real

I wanted to close my eyes again,

And reflect what’s left of my dreams.

As proverbial as it may seem…

I tried to visualize again.

The image of your reflection,

In my mind and in my heart.

You promised not to leave me.

But you left when I was beginning  to value your love,

You taught me to be true to myself.

You helped me appreciate the true meaning of life.

But now things will never be the same.

All I have are pictures of you,

Memories of the past,

The joyful moments,

When time was of no substance.

My lament now is for the moment to ponder .

How I wish I could turn back time

And be the person you want me to become.

You shouldn’t have gone.

You should have fought your way back,

For I know you are immensely strong.

Why did you have to leave me behind?

When everything was turning out so favorably.

I was to befit what you want me to be.

You left… oh so sudden.

I was not yet prepared.

I just hope you’re contented now

Because I know that you are..

I feel you guiding me inside my heart.

But if ever in a long time I had forgotten

To let you know….

I love you and miss you so much, dad.

    A beautiful tribute… and beautiful song from the heart…
    Loved your lines…

    ‘All I have are pictures of you,
    Memories of the past,
    The joyful moments,
    When time was of no substance.’
