A poem for my deceased dad, 17 years now


In my memory, You are still breathing

In my memory, You are still breathing
Along the lagoon in Elandsbay
By the river, by the waterfall
Along the coast, and on the sea sand

In my memory, You are still breathing
With my first fish on the line
My first fall with my bike
With arms around me

In my memory, You are still breathing
With thoughts of the emptiness, darkness
The open wound of my pain
With the bitter wine of your memory

In my memory, you are still breathing
In my past, is you

Those who have gone
Leave us with positive
Memory's
Family history's handed
On down to us, affect us
Make us the way we are
