I remember our trips to the lake.
You taught me how to steer the boat
But I fell out and wore your dry shirt as a dress
While the sun burned your back.
I remember all those rainy days.
We locked ourselves in the play room,
Drank hot cocoa, and built block castles
That towered over me while you towered over them.
I remember our summer hikes.
You told me I was prettier than all of the flowers,
Carried me on your shoulders when I got tired,
And injured yourself to cushion my fall.
I remember the father/daughter dance.
I wore my best dress for you.
You bought me flowers, wore a suit,
And took me on the best date of my life.
I remember going to new schools.
You taught me how to move on
And congratulated me for making it this far.
You gave me everything I needed.
I remember growing up.
You told me no boy was worthy of my heart
Or worth my tears.
I knew you were the only man I would ever love this much.
I remember visiting you in the hospital.
Sitting by your bed for hours.
Counting your breaths.
Telling you it’s okay if you have to go.
Ill be alright.
I remember your memorial service.
So many flowers.
So many tears.
So much love.
It was like you were sitting right next to me
I remember our last shared moments.
I knew that the second I took my eyes off your hand
Hanging from your bedside,
I would never see you again on this earth
I remember the last words you ever said to me.
I held your hand,
You kissed my cheek,
And whispered once more, “I love you.”
