You are gone from here ~ not really.

I can't talk to you ~ not really.

I miss you ~ you are alive in my memories.  You come to me in dreams.  I feel you in my heart.  There is a great distance between us.  Not really.....  The kids have been watching home movies.  You are healthy and laughing your boisterous laugh. 

You have gone on ahead of us ~ an answer to my prayers.  61 short years here on earth  ~ eternity with Our Lord.  One day we will be together again.  No more distance....  Until then ~ you are here.  In my heart.  Alive in memories.  Alive in the love you shared for us all.  Not so much distance after all.  I love you, Daddy.

Got five minutes? Tell us about Distance. No editing, no fussing, just five minutes of writing. And then link up over at Gypsy Mama's place.

Oh, so poignant and so sad. Isn't it great to know we will see our loved ones again someday?

Beautiful, Lori!

Praying the Rosary keeps us close to Jesus
