I Dreamed Of You Again…

The following is a poem that I wrote to/for my father a few years back… Grief still fills my heart, and I miss him every day. I truly believe that losing a parent is something that a person never gets over, and it never gets easier. The older I get, and the older my children get, the more I find myself wishing he were here to talk to, and the more I dream of him and wonder what life would be like if he were here.

I Dreamed Of You Again

A Poem By: Alicia Lee Canington

I dreamed of you again,
Like so many times before.
I dreamed of you again last night,
Dreamed you were with us once more.
I dreamed you walked among us,
That you said you’d never leave,
When I woke I was saddened,
To find it was only a dream.
I dreamed of you again,
That you met your grandsons, such wonderful little men.
I dreamed of you again,
Of a love that will never end.
I dreamed of you again,
That you were alive, and I know that you are.
I dreamed of you again,
Because you’re alive in my heart.
I dreamed of you again,
And I hope I continue to.
I’ll dream of you forever,
Because I’ll always love you…
