Even Though We’ve Lived Apart (A Tribute To My Father)

aromaticcoffees

A tribute to my father today. A man who raised four children as a widower. How he kept it together we’ll never comprehend. And even although we are scattered around the world now, the influence of this wonderful man keeps as all together…

So here’s a poem I found.

Even though we’ve lived apart, I do not love you less. There’s provision in the heart For storing tenderness.

There’s a love that like a star Must reconfigure space To turn the far-flung wanderers Towards some predestined grace.

Time matters not, nor pain, nor death, Nor fate as hard as stone. This truth needs but a single breath, And that we now have known.

Ah, Father! What a joy to live With love at last expressed! Life has no greater gift to give Than that with which we’re blessed.

– Nicholas Gordon
