A poem, in memory of my dad

When all is quiet I know,
that you always think of me.
Whether staring at the starry sky,
or at the calm blue sea.
My heart and mind were oh so strong,
I stayed as long as I could bear.
Then saw a light and followed it,
my journey ended here.
I’m in a place you’d recognize,
with friends from long ago.
They welcomed me with open arms,
they said to say hello.
I feel you struggle every day,
I see you when you cry.
I hear you when you talk to God,
and when you ask Him, “why”?
I wish that I could tell you,
you’ll just have to watch for signs.
You’ll see them if you let yourself,
you’ll see them all the time.
I cannot tell you how I miss you,
but that bird you saw today?
That was me, just stopping by,
to say that I’m okay.
