So sorry to hear of your father's loss Gillena.. my deepest condolences to you. He sounds like a wonderful and brave man.. a fire fighter.. must have had such a lot of courage for this noble occupation.

Loved the poem. My father is currently an instructor at GACA academy, he teaches aviation related subjects. I m often told to be just like him in nature :)

Lots of love,
Sanaa

One of the many things my Dad taught me.
__Face to face: If anyone displays a pompous attitude that, they are of a far deeper intellect, and of a much more notable status and respect than you...

SILENTLY smile inward, and accept their views as complements. You can reason that they may hold you as a threat to their ego; move onward. (60 plus years ago)

Ah, sometimes the washing effects of rain are a good thing!
A timely poem...and enjoyed your reflection on your father this Father's Day.
And indeed we always miss them when they are gone....forever.

I lost my Dad in 1998...he had Alzheimer's from his early 50s to his late 60s...a painful horrible illness and end....he was the gentlest, most compassionate loving person I have ever met....and my heart breaks that he is gone....but his light shines on through me and that makes me smile again!

No matter how much you loved them or talked to them when they were alive; once they have gone you still have questions for them just like you did as a child. Many of my questions would still start with the word "Why?"

Thanks for sharing Gillena. I like your poem and the thoughts about your father.
Mine was absent, but my grandfather stepped in and did an amazing job. I still miss him.

Hey! I love this in all of its potential meanings. My dad was a postman, but was also a volunteer firefighter and I remember him often leaping into shoes on a run out the door. His birthday, yesterday brought him to the decent age of 90.
