October Whispers-Poem for my Dad
My Precious Father
Missing you Father
October whispers your spirit to me
through colorful leaves that fall from the tree
October wind whispers your fatherly love
and the day your soul left to meet God above
October brings memories of the three musketeers
and the special bond we shared throughout the years
to help your kids flourish and not be so sad
October-Autumnal, symbolic of end
will forever remind me of you, my best friend

Poetry on Loss
This poem was written and dedicated to my late father. He was a mother, father, friend and confidante to me. He raised five children after my mother passed away at a young age. He will forever be in my heart and soul.
Dad passed away at 74 years old from complications of emphysema. He died on October 11, 1997, just three months before he was to meet his newest granddaughter, Ellie Arne. It's hard to believe he has been gone for so many years. I never thought I would get beyond the grief, but time and faith that he was still watching over me, got me through it. I will miss him everyday and know I will be reunited with him when it is my time to leave this earth.
Love you dad-Your daughter Linda
