I had no idea…
this moment would be my last.
His laugh would be final
“I love you!” wouldn’t be heard again.
He was immortal to me.
Time winded down, the ticking of the clock slowed.
Seconds became minutes, hours became days.
His days were numbered and the end drew near.
The long hand aligned with the short hand and it stopped.
The ticking stopped…
The beating of his heart slowed to a final breath returning
to whence he came.
No more pain.
Daddy silently slipped away.
Right into a blissful abyss I can’t see but will meet one day.
This can’t be the end.
It isn’t the end.
One sweet day, Daddy,
we’ll meet again.
