I know this probably isn't the best place to share, but I wrote a poem last night while I was reflecting on what I posted in my previous thread, dedicated to my son. I didn't originally post it since I didn't want to incite too much pity from all of you, or make you feel burdened by how I feel, but at the advice of a friend who thought it might help me feel better, I decided to share it here. You don't have to read it if you don't wish, and I don't mean to spark any anger or hostility with this thread. Any art form is a great method of expressing human emotion, so I want this thread to be dedicated to any poetry or really any piece of art that has a strong personal meaning to you. You could've made it, or maybe someone else did and you feel it just spoke to you or related to you in a special way. Regardless, share what gives you feels, Flood. The following lines are the poem I wrote titled, "Missing You". It's not much, but it's something to me. I broke it up every four lines to make it a little easier to read and not seem so bunched together. Thank you for your time. I was there to hear your very first cry, And the sound brought more than a tear to my eye. I was there to see your very first smile, And for that moment I made my own for a while. I was there to hold you and care for you true, And felt how much that I truly loved you. From the very beginning, you made me so proud, The child I dreamed of with my head in the clouds. And even so young, in two months you passed; Maybe you were just too perfect to last. A day won’t come that I don’t remember All that had happened into November. The ups and downs, the joy and the strife, The memories I’ll carry throughout my life. If I could ever have another few moments, I know what I’d use them to say, “Daddy misses you, Garrett, And he will for the rest of his days.”
