I love you always, Dad

This is obviously not a haiku; however, it is a poem and it's a poem dedicated to my father.

Waking to feel empty
thy heart suffers your loss

Todays
aching in your absence
forever holding your space

Tomorrows
your love felt eternally
knowing your legacy will prevail

Nice?

Adults prefer respect and
Reciprocate it.
