Default Re: Goodbye Dad...

My deepest condolences to you and your family. As someone who is struggling with cancer and has a family, it is hard to know how to spend the time and to say the things that need to be said while you can.
Sounds as if your father was able to do that. That is a true blessing!

Thank you my friend, yes, it was a real blessing, for him, for my Sister, for myself and for those present when he went away.

It truly is an honour and a blessing to be there in the final moments. It is not an experience that can be described with words but I'm sure there are many here that can understand.

Cancer's a bitch; too much of it in my family. My condolences and wishing you peace.

Skulmoski, thank you my friend, agreed about this disease too.



On a more positive note, some happy memories, however, I do not recall this picture of my Dad and I being taken :)

Default Re: Goodbye Dad...

I’m arriving…

From chrysanthemums to chrysanthemums
Our friends and loved ones are leaving
From chrysanthemums to chrysanthemums
The other flowers do what they can
From chrysanthemums to chrysanthemums
Men and women cry

I'm arriving, I'm arriving...
But I would have liked
Once again to drag my bones
Up until the summer sun
Until spring, until tomorrow...

I'm arriving, I'm arriving...
But I would have liked
Again to see if the river
Is still a river, see if the port
Is still a port, to see me there
Just one more time

I'm arriving, I'm arriving...
But why me, why now
Why so soon and where to go?
I'm arriving, of course I'm arriving
Have I ever done anything than arriving?

From chrysanthemums to chrysanthemums
Every time a little more solitary
From chrysanthemums to chrysanthemums
Every time a little more lonely

I'm arriving, I'm arriving...
But what I would have liked
To fall in love once more
Like we take a train, not to be alone
To be elsewhere, to be well

I'm arriving, I'm arriving...
But I would have liked
Once again to fill with stars
A trembling body and drop dead
Burned by love, my heart in ashes

I'm arriving, I'm arriving...
It's not even that you're ahead
It is I who am already late
I'm arriving, of course I'm arriving
Have I ever done anything than arriving?
