Linked

weekend wordsmith prompt: time

Today’s Dad’s birthday
We’re both February babes
Yesterday was mine

We’re some ways alike
As dads and daughters can be
Much to Mom’s chagrin

We had our issues
Now all I have are questions
Dad’s dead twenty years

It was our cancer
Over at fifty-seven
He missed the good stuff

Melanoma – thief of time

Thank you for being so candid. The sentiment cut my heart.

Happy Birthday to both of you.

Was the FEB 21st your b-day? Mine too! Though I am sure you are younger.
I am sorry for your loss.

Happy Birthday to you and your dad.

Fifty seven - too young. Twenty years ago must seem like yesterday sometimes.

Those are beautiful photos, Lulu. And "much to Mom's chagrin." I can relate to that. Ha.

Maria said...

Happy birthday and many happy returns of the day.
