The Final Goodbye
(dedicated, to my deceased dad, Boyd Gerald)
Years ago, when I was ten
I found your lifeless body
face down on the frozen ground.
The impact of your death
Crippled me mentally
And sent me on a road of uncertainty.
I looked for answers but came up emptyhanded.
The answers I searched for were only to be
Found in me.
You came to me in a dream
And told me to carry on
Because this was your
From that dream, I grew stronger
Just like you wanted me to be.
Rest in peace, Dad
The Almighty chose wisely
When he chose you.
