Aren’t We Having Fun?

The coffee didn’t brew
The shower didn’t run
The room…too cold for you
Aren’t we having fun?

Laid out clothes never again to be worn
Cats basking in the morning sun
I’m reminiscing of days since I was born.
Aren’t we having fun?

No sounds of pickin’ guitar
Or TV showing the political run
I pray he hasn’t gone too far
Aren’t we having fun?

No pain to feel
No meds on the tongue
I keep thinking this can’t be real
Aren’t we having fun?

A warm embrace and kiss on the face
In final moments with the one
That I can still hear echoes of his voice saying…Aren’t we having fun?

It is with great sadness that I share the passing from this life to the next of Michael33, my daddy. Thank you for following his poetry blog. I hope it gave you as much joy as it did our family.

A final Namaste,

On behalf of Michael33

    Sending love and light and honoring your dad’s gift of poetry and stark truth of dying with the world. I will share a few poems on Grumpy Gifts. Beyond that, and I realize it may be too, too early, but I wonder how you plan to preserve these petaled poems? 🐚🌊💙🙏🏼💫

  4. Michael was an amazing man and the world has lost a great one. Yet, Heaven has gained a new angel. Your dad was a fighter and I greatly admired him for that. I will miss his posts, and kind words. My condolences to you and your family. ❤
