Sleep Well...... My Dad
by Jennie Harris
I want to switch off the moon, Pull the blinds down on the stars, I wanna throw away the sun and the sea to be calm!! Most of all.... I want to stand still!!!! I want to breath in all that you taught me and shout out all the things you told me but most of all....... I want to stand still!!!
Life now will never be the same! There is a hole in my heart and there's no-one to blame! You may have been taken from me but this world has lost a great man and it sure wont ever be the same!
I knew very little that morning that god was gonna call my dads name. He went to my mums rest place that day with my brother in Spain. He wanted to go for a drink by the beach like he normally did after visiting her and was finding it hard to catch his breath. My brother asked if he was ok? Dad being dad and stubborn said he was fine and that he must of over done the excise that morning. Soon after he asked if he could go home and my brother started to worry and and knew something was wrong. They went home and my brother said have a freshen up dad and I will take you to the doctors!! He tried to help him to the bathroom and in a second he was gone!!! He was a typical very funny irish man with stories to tell that would keep you on the edge of your seat! Everyone loved him who met him and most felt privelidge to be in his company! I was blessed that he was "My Dad" My Friend!!!! Sleep well dad, I know you missed mum so much but your together now, I just wish you both were here with us xxx
