I looked for you again today although the memories where there you weren't.

I can't go a minute an hour a day without thinking about you, tears flow anger bubbles to the surface the emptiness is overwhelming.

I go about my day thinking that somehow the door will open the the car will drive up and somehow you will once again walk in and call my name. 

Time now is measured from the day you passed the days before that you were with me and the days after in which you left. Time has no other meaning no purpose no reason to be measured. 

It wasn't meant to happen,the decision shouldn't have been mine to make to let you pass, the guilt is eating me inside and yet it was your strength  that you instilled in me that allowed me to make that decision when you couldn't. 

Good bye my father my friend my heart and my soul, you gave me everything, you gave me life hope and a chance to dream while you watched over me. 

The dreams are gone and hope has faded I sit with my sorrow and  hope that life has something more after our passing something to hold on to.

So now I watch the clock one tick one minute one hour at a time, it passes so slowly and yet it's passed so quick the days since you've left.

Alex I am sorry for your loss of a father who meant so much to you that you honour with such a beautiful tribute.
Decisions are something we make in life and never know if this is the right one. We have to find a way in life to forgive ourselves for the decisions we have to make on behalf of another. I am sure you made the decision for the right reasons and this is what counts. Find a way through your grief to find Hope and Peace to go on each day. Best wishes.
