this poem is about my dad after he had heart surgery i thought to myself all the time and id look at him feeling so bad i would remember times he came on his bike so one day he caught looking out the window and sensed what i thought of him that my dad will never ride again so he did and 1 last time for me.

one last time

month's after surgery dad
came to me.
as if he knew how i felt and
said one day id see.

oneday he was out back
looking at his bike.
i watched through the window
as i cried feeling bad inside.

i thought to my self he'll
never be able to ride again.
why did i let him get surgery
i hate seeing him like this.

the next thing i know dad
called me out back.
he said mamas this is for
you i'll show you that i can.

we all went out the gate
he rode around the block.
my kids rode along his side
i couldnt believe he didnt fall.

i cried so hard that day cause
he knew how i felt.
he sensed my belief in him
i never should have doubts.

and this is something i will
remember for as long that i shall live.
is how my daddy rode his bike one last
time and did it for his kid .

the end

So beautiful and so heartfelt. It's good to have memories of those we've lost. It makes them seem more alive even after our loved ones depart. :-)
