ten times forever (haiku for Dad)

Readers of this blog will know that my Dad died unexpectedly less than two weeks ago. Like anyone who loses a loved one, I’ll be processing this for a while. Not in a maudlin or “poor-pitiful-me” way; its just that my world has changed forever. Aside from sadness and nostalgia, my overwhelming feeling is one of gratitude for the gift of having a wonderful Dad for so many years, one who loved me (and so many others) with his whole heart. And so, a haiku:

joy-sorrow feelings
how long will i love-miss you?
ten times forever

    1. Thank you, and yes, I realize the gift of a father like mine is one that is much rarer than it should be. Blessings to you. I’ve looked at your blog and enjoy the quirky-insightful outlook you have.

  1. I am so sorry. I lost my dad in May this year. I suspect that’s how you found my blog, tagged with “grief”, “aging parent”, and “dad”. I suppose we will live forever and grieve in spurts for eternity, which is the same as ten times forever. Peace to you.
