Passing On To Glory

All I hear is condolences

Rolling off grief stricken tongues

They hit me

Like hard pebbles meant for skipping


They tell the tale of a daughter

Who lost her father last week

Kind faces filled with sympathy towards me

Are hurtful and bring no relief


But through sorrow we heal together

I pray for understanding to grow

Into someone better…

Into a person my late father would recognize

And come to know


But I will wait patiently until we meet again

He was a trusted confidant and loyal friend

God let me borrow you for a moment in time

And I twinkled in your eye


A Daddy’s girl through and through

You had me and I had you

There was no separation

No wondering where you were


You were beside my Mother

You were doing OT at work

You were at the gas station

Buying donuts, conversing with the clerk


You were a man worth your salt

Your courage couldn’t be sold

Your character couldn’t be brought

You stood like a mountain


You weren’t moved by the winds of change

You weren’t shaken by the whispering breeze

With feet that moved with grace

A face that grinned with ease

You did as you wanted

And spoke as you pleased


A Daddy’s girl through and through

You had me and I had you

There was no separation

No wondering where you were

But now I feel comfort in knowing

That you passed on to glory


Love always, Esha ❤
