August 6th, 2011

Happy Birthday dear dad
Today a party was to be planned
Food, family, and friends
Laughter, memories, and stories
You were to turn 75 years old

Your life is what we were to celebrate
Unfortunately, that was not to be
The Lord figured that you were needed elsewhere
Maybe he intended to spare you from the coming appalling demise
We were losing pieces of you each day and every day

No matter, your spirit shall forever remain with us
The good days and bad, I am so grateful for all the time we had
On this day, we will sit with you and wish we could bring you back
Wondering where all the time has went
We’ll cry and wish you hadn’t died

You tried to be Dad, Yapper to everyone. Eventually, it was too much
I believe you left just in time
In haste, Lewy Body Dementia was stealing you away
Thank you for holding on as long as you did
One day, may the Lord bring us all together once again

Love you Dad
