10 Years

Very few days do I remember every moment so clearly.    Very few moments that I do are sad ones.   Today 10 years gone by is remembered and it is sad.   The day my dad passed.  Ten years gone already.     It seems so fast, but its not.   So much life has been lived since then.     He has 4 grandchildren he will never meet.    There have been so many milestones and moments I wish he was present for.    I carry him in my heart daily and every moment my son smiles I see my dad in him.  He has his eyes.      I am thankful for the years we had, but I won't lie that I wish we still had 10+ more ahead of us.    

You are missed.  Every. Day.
