Alex (For My Father-in-law R.I.P)

by Derrick L. McFadden


I just want to thank you for everything that you have done.
From taking me fishing and hunting, to getting me my first gun.
For helping to raising a wonderful daughter that is my best friend and wife.
For all the time we spent together as a family, which I will cherish for life.
I keep hoping that I will wake up from this horrible nightmare,
And see you once again dozing on and off in your favorite recliner chair.
I know this will never happen or ever come true.
So just in case you didnít know I want to say I Love You
And I know I will see you again, amongst the sun, moon and stars.
Knowing that you are watching and shining down on all of us, from a far.
Taking your place among all of our loved ones that have been laid to rest.
No more taking pills or feeling pain just you at your very best.  
I still canít believe that you were taken from all of us just like that.
Without a chance for you to say goodbye and for us to say it back.
We will do our best to hold on and stay strong for each other and for you to.
With you and the powers that be by our side, we will make it through.
Even though at times it hurts so much and it feels as though I am falling apart.
I regain my composure like you would do and use good memories to mend my heart.
You maybe out of sight, but you are not out of mind.
You will remain in my thoughts until God says itís my time.
