You Are Missed #Prose4T

By | October 23, 2014

It’s nearly been a year
Since you’ve been gone
No chance to say goodbye
The stroke that took you was too strong

You are missed
For your honesty and your advice
It was always there, harsh or mild
But the follow up smile was so nice

You were the hub of the family
A router for news and chat
A void that can’t be filled
And that simply, is that

The children talk about you
They wonder how you are
Perhaps you’re looking down on us all
Smiling from that brightest star

We had so much to tell you
New school, new achievements and the like
You’d have loved seeing D
Smiling on her new trike

On the anniversary
What will we do?
I expect we’ll chat, cry and hug
Light a candle for you
