Remember Me

by Michael


When flesh shall pass
and footprints are no more
upon the sandy ocean shores,
remember me.  

Box the poems and store the art,
for I was more than these.  

Your comforter,
your closest friend,
I taught you how to dream.  

I closely held you as you wept
and calmed your fears.  

Through me,
you learned that life’s
a precious gift
and hope prevails.  

When nights are laced
in heavenly display,
remember lessons that I taught.  

All feelings,
no matter what they are,
have value.  

Everyone
is deserving of respect.  

There is no color
to the human race,
we’re all the same.  

I lit your candle with my own
and smiled as I watched you glow.  
Always share your light with others
and bring joy to their lives.  

Know that fear once conquered,
is courage grown.

Remember me,
your father.
and how I loved you so.

These are the most valuable life lessons a Father could leave a child, and you certainly will have taught a child well!  This was fantastic Michael, and so heartwarming.

Thinking of you, Chris....and praying for you!!  
Found this poem that your dad wrote for you...and thought...maybe...you would need a gentle "hug" from him [for I consider his poems and words hugs].  I am SURE that he is watching over you...as he told me that he would.  NEVER stop believing that your dad loved you and even now...he misses you!  When he and I would speak...he would talk about you...with smiles and laughter in his voice!  [Oh, how I loved to hear him talk about you...your dad was some thing special.  Not all dad's talk about their kids the way he did you. ]  You were his one true treasure...his love...and his life!  Never stop believing that!
Well, I just wanted you to know that I was thinking about you.  And that you will have my prayers ALWAYS!!!

God bless you now and FOREVER, Chris!!  

With love and hugs...Becka
