tucked away treasure

I didn't have time to get to know you dad
angels hastily flew you away
small faded photograph in my wallet
your soft smile comforts me each day

that is so sweet lucy... sometimes we can love them more as "just a photograph" as there was never any ill words between is......

What a sweet poem in remembrence of your dad. I wish you'd had longer to know him.

I lost my mother when I was young, so I feel the poignancy of this.

That's a lovely little tribute. I love the "angels hastily flew you away" line. What a comfort it is to think of a death in that way.

When things are said in such a heartfelt way, there's no beautiful or less beautiful...there's truth :) Truth is above all.

Lucy,
A thousand words in a nut shell!
You've given us a crystal clear photograph.

Nice tribute to your dad. So many don't even know who their dad is. At least you have a photo. You don't have to go on Maury and have a DNA test.
