Odd Time Of year

~ ~ ~
It's an odd time of year.
Wet and cold.
Looking forward to warmer days.
Hoping that the blooms
of last year
arrived again this Spring.
I am cold to the bone.
Need to warm this soul a bit.
Just saying ...

Today I Think Of Him

~ ~ ~
When I think of him,
I remember the smile.
Always a calmness to him.
Never did he yell.
I think he liked life too much.
I didn't know him well.
My memories have faded.
I think of a few and smile.
He made me do that.
I miss him sometimes.
Only in life we go
along the way
doing what needs to be done.
He did the same.
What needed to be.
I haven't thought of him
in a long time.
It's been that long
since he went away.
I used to talk to him
almost every day.
Just for a moment.
One day he was gone.
I liked him a lot.
He had a kind soul.
He was a simple man.
He was my Dad.
