    Tell me where I'm going
    Tell me where you went
    What was it you were tryin' to say
    before my world came crashing in?

    Maybe it was just misfortune
    Or maybe by design
    I wish you could have helped me
    prepare this heart of mine.

    For the evening
    for the middle of the night
    In this desert
    where your heart can die of fright

    What am I supposed to do
    when I'm pickin' up the phone
    and find myself calling you
    Tho' you won't be coming home

    A lot of times I feel you
    when I'm driving down the road
    so strong I check the rearview mirror
    and pray I'm not alone

    I know that you weren't perfect.
    but hell, I don't know who is
    And only God can judge a man
    by what he said and did.

    Stay with me this evening
    sleep in my easy chair tonight
    I'll miss your laugh and all you were
    til' my own soul takes its flight

    I know I'll live life to its fullest
    but it hurts when i'm alone
    Would you please still call on Saturdays
    I'f I'm waiting by the phone.

    I miss you Pops...it only hurts when I breathe.

    Loren E Graf 1937-2007

    Dear Isaac,

    I think I have no words at the moment...beautiful Isaac. I am sure he loves this, and he lives on in you for you are an extension of him. I felt this all the way down to my toes....

    I miss you Pops...it only hurts when I breathe.


    that last line...that last line....that last line.......

    Ahh Zaac.... a truly beautiful tribute. And the pain... it never goes away..... it only gives you reprieves and when you least expect it....... there it is again. But each time the bearing gets easier... That is all one can truly hope. You have taken my breathe away with how much pain and love is there. Beautiful Zaac just truly a beautiful Write.

    *hugs*

    a grand ode to your father... sent a chill across my face... a beautiful, heartfelt song.... it made me think of my own mortality and how my children will take that loss if i left them now.....

    No prob MR ZAAC - but I think you should capitalize PD :p
    Anyway - heartfelt sentiments - I kinda kept my response down to a minimum, as I've never met my "Father" --- I'm quite fond of saying my Mama is and was my Daddy and Mommy.... So - It was like an emotional rush to read your poem - especially the dedication part.

    Lovely!

    Jacquii.
