Not Forgotten

For my dad who went to Heaven on May 24, 2011 – I wrote this on the first anniversary of his passing.

You are remembered-
When those random
thoughts trickle down
the back of my mind.
When I hear that song
you loved on the radio –
all it takes is the first
few notes and I see
your crooked smile.
When I think of her –
especially in your arms,
together and smiling.
She is in my heart every
day, and so are you.
No monuments, no lavish
words – just the dreams
that give me new memories,
and the remnants of you in
my own imperfect smile.
