The above picture is of my Stepdad and my oldest Daughter, Hope, when she was 3 months old I think. It was taken several years before he passed away.
Memories and Whispers by April Gerard
I remember you.
Showing me a good man.
with faults, but still a good man.
Showing me humanness and kindness.
Showing that mistakes do not always
say a person is a failure, that men
can be and often are just as human as me.
I listen to a song called Almost Home,
that describes you to me.
and I smile.
No feat was too big
No word could undo
what you set out to do;
set out to be.
Nothing was empty
in the dreams you
said..to just try..
nevermind the No's
the incomprehension from others,
or the roads you've traveled in life before today.
Don't worry so much what others think April.
They're your dreams,
it's your Life...
Live it. Live it! you'd say.
Yes, I remember you in memories
and in whispers that will never go away.
