12.09.21 Remembrances of You (Poetry, 2021)

“Remembrances of You” was written about the second anniversary of my Dad’s passing this past July. He passed away in me and my Sister’s arms and suffered with dementia and COPD. The poem was written on December 5, 2021 and is in my personal poetry book, ‘Earthly Delights in a Closed Type Universe.’ Enjoy, and say a little prayer for my Dad’s spirit tonight. xx -bb


“Remembrances of You” by Brian Bolding


Thinking about

All those normal ordinary times

Throwaway moments like going to the bookstore

And you talking to me playing your blues on the radio

Bumping along, knowing you’d do anything

To make us all happy but not without some yelling

We always knew you loved us, no matter what

Today, since you’ve been gone

Over two years ago

I can’t believe how fast time has flown

Since we held your hands as you left us

Daddy, we miss you each day

In each and every way

And our memories of you

Will never ever die

We will keep your spirit alive

Tell your jokes and make you fly.
