Here’s something I wrote for my Dad, out of missing him so bad.

POSTCARDS FROM HEAVEN

A memory of you

flashes out of the blue

Which brings me to tears

for all the years I’ve lived without you

I need not question the plan

which purpose I never knew

but instead believe in the cliche

that there’s a God who knows our lives more than we do

My only wish now is that you send me

postcards from where you’ve been

just like before

only this time

send them from heaven

Write my name on it

the name of your little girl

make sure to write P.S I Love You

from Papa

and seal it with a kiss

with your longhand loveĀ letter

I may have grown into a woman

I know you wish you’ve seen

but I will always be your little baby

long after the day we meet again.
