I Love You


I love you!

I Miss my Father. He died early this March.

The last words I herd him say was “ I Love you!” .

I love him too I still do and always will.

How do you honor the passing of someone who meant so much?


“Do not weep for me for I have not gone.

I am the wind that shakes the mighty Oak.

I am the gentle rain that falls upon your face.

I am the spring flower that pushes through the dark earth.

I am the chuckling laughter of the mountain stream.

Do not weep for me for I have not gone.

I am the memory that dwells in the heart of those that knew me.

I am the shadow that dances on the edge of your vision.

I am the wild goose that flies south at Autumns call and I shall return at Summer rising.

I am the stag on the wild hills way.

I am just around the corner.

Therefore, the wise weep not.

But rejoice at the transformation of my Being.”

  3. beautiful poem and beautiful and poignant post. I miss my dad too. He gave me a love of art and history and I always hope I honour him in my own explorations of that.
    In this great mystery of time and life love and the memory of love connect all the crossroads of our journey!

  4. Dear Owl,
    I am sorry I missed this post. I have no words to express the sympathy and empathy I feel towards you, specially during this time. I think it was just beautiful that the last thing you heard him say was¨ I love you.¨ One day before my mother passed she called me and said to me the same exact words. We never spoke again. Those words are a gift that both you and I will hold forever in our hearts, because we love them and we always will. Tight hugs.

          1. That is completely normal Owl. All I can say is that in time it will settle. But I am just too aware of how painful it is now as if the rest of your life would be like this. Trust eventually it will not. REALLY. But you can´t rush it and each one of us has a different timeline for that. Be patient, kind and compassionate towards yourself. As much or even more than you would be with another. I am here and I will always be here for you. You are not alone. ILY!
