Chris and Megan are my nephew and niece. Chris is in the picture with me here.
Their dad died on July 28th. He was much too young to leave us.
This poem is for Chris and Megan.
I know how sad you are
I grieve for you so much
losing your dad ... your shining star
his endless magic touch!

I miss him too
he was my friend
I am so very blue
but he's always in my thoughts...
till the very end!

Be happy for all you shared
while your dad was here
that love cannot be compared
to any other... it was beautiful, precious and dear!

Think of him and smile
I'm so sorry he's gone
he was here for only a short while
but his love remains
in your heart
like a beautiful song!

I love you Chris!
I love you Megan!

  2. Margie that was very nice and they are lucky to have an aunt like you. My sympathies are with you and your family.

  3. Hi, my first visit to ur blog. Beautiful expressions. I am sorry Chris and Megan. I lost my father on April 28th. I liked what you have written....

    ~*~ Be happy for all you shared
    while your dad was here ~*~

    It is so true. Life is not the same without him and nor are ppl around most of all mom. My mom and dad were married for 41 yrs but they were seeing each other for more than a decade before that. Being together for over 50 years and then she lost him only 5 days after their 41st wedding anniv. Till date she says "ur father deceived me, broke his promise.....".

    Take care and GOD bless.

  4. So lovely. Brings a tear. Margie, you have such a kind and loving heart. Bless you for that.
