four years

in the rising of the sun and its going down,
we remember them.
in the glowing of the wind and in the chill of winter,
we remember them.
in the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of spring,
we remember them.
in the blueness of the sky and in the warmth of summer,
we remember them.
in the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of autumn,
we remember them.
in the beginning of the year and when it ends,
we remember them.
when we are weary and in need of strength,
we remember them.
when we are lost and sick at heart,
we remember them.
when we have joys we yearn to share,
we remember them.
so long as we live, they too shall live,
for they are now a part of us, as
we remember them.

sometimes i wish so much that you were still here. i marvel at how much has happened in the last four years since your passing. i know that you are with us and i'm comforted knowing that your love resides deep inside of me.

you truly are a part of who i have become.

i love you dad.

i still haven't baked him his favorite cake...carrot with cream cheese frosting.
he's been so, so patient. he knows its definitely worth the wait. its that good.
and i know his eyes will definitely light up when he sees all those candles.
it will be a joyous celebration.
