Last Poem To My Dad

My Dad's favorite place
Fort McHenry

Psalm 46:2 ~ Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

I cannot stand...

I have our heartfelt memories
Stored inside my heart
I cannot stand and watch you
Being slowly torn apart.

There is a soft wind blowing
A fragrance in the air
Heaven calling out to you
I cannot stand to bear.

I cannot stand and watch
The lighthouse falling down
Brick by brick dismantled
Without its shining crown.

I cannot come and be there
To stand right by your side
I’m in the best place for you
And that is right inside!

I stand along the shoreline
And watch your light go dim.
I see the angel’s calling out
In a radiant glorious hymn.

I love you, Dad!
