I'm always scared to leave my mother alone with the monster upstairs. But she always told me she can handle him and I should get on with my life and not worry. How can I? I get scary calls at night of her asking for help but I'm on the other side of the earth. How can I go on with my life if I'll always have to worry about the monster upstairs who I use to call my father...

The new year isn't a national holiday in our house. It's always yelling, screaming and police arriving to arrest the same alcoholic man every year. Sometimes I might a joke about it and say "the cops probably know us by now." But they don't and don't care. They think we're just a family that's a waste a time to help... Happy New Years Father... I'll look forward to what you have to complain about...

     There will be no
     Passing of the phone
     When you call today
     Because you won't
     Call today;
     You can't
     There are no phones
     Where you are now.

Mi padre
Me ha apoyado, cuidado y amado,
Me ha levantado,
Me ha enseñado humildad y respeto,
Me hace reír,
Me escucha, me tiene paciencia y me ha instruido a tenerla,
Me impulsa hacia adelante,
Siempre me abraza fuerte,
Me enseñó a escuchar,
Me enseñó a distinguir cuando el silencio es mejor que cualquier palabra.
Mi padre es querido por muchos y amado por todos,
Es inteligente, bondadoso, humilde, respetuoso y perseverante.
Mi padre, a mis ojos, es uno de los mejores seres humanos de esta tierra y agradezco inconmensurablemente tenerlo y poder llamarlo “Papá”
¡Feliz cumpleaños!
¡Gracias por tanto!

- Dedicated to my father, who is fighting cancer at the moment
- a short and simple poem
- just something that is going through my mind at this very moment, sitting
  here with my father and enjoying our time together
- please excuse the shortness
- just wanted to write a few words

____________________________________________________________________________

Let´s enjoy this night,
like an adventurer respects nature´s might.

Let´s enjoy these days,
even though you´re going through a difficult phase.

`Cause God only knows how many more there will come.

You can get all of this done!

And after that, we will have fun:

Together like father and son.

Day by day, by every word you say, you inspire me to be a better person, I can't believe that a great soul like you is my father, there's still so much I have to learn from you Papa.
How you forgive everybody so easily,
How you are always the first one in line to help others,
How its always so positive around you,
How you always have everything sorted,
How come you are so righteous and wise
How being around you gives me peace
How when am totally broken or tensed I just wanna lay my head on your chest and cry.
How you always read my mind
How you are so simple and soft and calm all the time
How everybody admires you
How you are able to take care of everybody around you
How you are so selfle...

A NEW DAY

Skylark Challenge 166

   Neither of us foresaw
   Your unexpected plummet
   Into the obsidian hell
   That controlled you;
   The black magic of the drink


     You always thought
     You were invincible,
          Immortal even
           And so did we
    Assuming that you'd be
     The last man standing
  As lucid as any drunkard
         Can possibly be
               All alone
And floating through space
         On an asteroid
  After the rest of the world
              Was gone.

         One day
         I hope to
         Put it all
         To rest
         And be able
         To raise a bottle
         To you
         And all the memories
         I've held tight
         To my heart
         But today
         Is not that day
         Because it is still
         Too soon.                    JD

Quit be a Spectator in your own life. Be a participant. Looking at the sunset off the gulf of Mexico renewed a feeling inside of me. To wiggle my toes in the sand as memories of happy times raced through my mind. Dancing with my Father for the first time meant the world to me. It meant as much to him. Father and daughter building a relationship long lost. Found again. It was a blessed trip to see my family. Giving thanks this season for all of my loved ones.

Hi Papa,

Of the many qualities you helped me imbibe,
Of the several lessons you taught,
The strength I get realizing I'm your daughter,
The motivation that fuels me,
Papa, I love the affirmation the most,
That whatever happens,
You've always been proud of me,
Unconditionally.
You've always soothed my wounds, when it hurt.
I'm a fighter, for you inspire.
I'm living, for I aspire,
To shine like you wanted me to,
To glow like you dreamt.
May I grow enough,
That I meet you proudly,
When we meet again.

Love you always...

   I cried today
   It was much needed
   And way past due
   Caused
   By the ripple effect
   Of the past few days
   Starting with a poem
   I had written
   Then seeing a painting
   Of us
   Topped off by
   Papers in the mail
   I still
   Haven't found closure
   And I'm nowhere near
   Letting go of the guilt
   But a good cry
   Is never a waste
   And today
   I had a good cry.        JD (Princess)

Dad,

I know this man
Who is dear to my heart.
Suddenly one day
It was torn all apart.

This man taught me everything
That I needed to know,
But I never really listened
Until he had to go.

He gave me love
And touched my life.
It's all over now;
He no longer has to fight.

He tried to teach me
Right from wrong.
The day he left
I wasn't that strong.

He is gone now,
It is hard to believe.
This man is my dad
Whom I will never see.

But I will see him again,
This I know.
The day will come
When it's time for me to go.

So, I'll hold him, dear
And close to my heart
'Cause the day we meet
I know we'll never be torn apart.
                                         ...

Fathers and Daughters . . . .

Heroes that don't wear capes
But are always there to protect us
Struggling to make a living
Yet they put up a brave front
#Fathers

Their weakness and strengths
Are their daughters ❤️

They can be a strict father
They can be the mischievous friend
They can be our shoulder to cry on
They can be our bodyguards
They can be the one who fights against the world for us
They can be our secret keeper too
#Fathers

A rock to his daughter and her best friend
#Fathers

A tribute to all those Fathers who are in heaven looking over their daughters.
And a big thank you to God for all those Fathers who make each day better for their daughters even though they have their own...

PAPA.
How fast time is flying na..
But now I want to stop this time
As I can see how old you are getting & I can see there is no same energy you have now .
PAPA.
Now it's my time to take your all responsibilities I want you to trust on me & on my dreams too
I'm nothing without your support & love
It's killing me we stay in same home & don't talk .
PAPA.
this 4 words "papa" make me smile
The same way I want to make you smile when you say " my daughter made me feel proud"  

                  
        Papa hug me & say that you are there for me , please hold me & walk with me & see what I want to chase ,
I need you , you are just near me & I can't hug you & tell you what I'm feeling....

     Your expected honor
     As a viking
     Always falling through cracks
     As you played the villain
     In your own life story
     Until the final call
     When your nefarious ways
     Caught up with you
     And you fell victim
     To the pills and alcohol
     That stole your life
     While thieves
     Stole everything else
     And all we could do
     Was reap the nothingness
     That was left
     Of your tenuous existence.       JD

        I watch the downpour
        From my bedroom window
        And I imagine myself,
        A solitary figure,
        Being stuck
        In the eye of the storm
        Then my thoughts turn to you
        In the emergency room
        A tempest of machines and strangers
        Surrounding you
        Yet all alone within your mind
        I cannot begin to fathom
        The emptiness you felt
        As you passed on
        From this world to the next
        Never bridging the gap
        Between my first "I love you"
        And my last missed call.          JD (Princess)

Abbu Ki Prem gatha!!

Ji Ab pyaar mohobbat ki baatein rehne dete hain..
Log hain Jo apni alag kahani jeete hain
Unhe bhi apni daastan bayaan karne dete hain..
Ladka ladki isme bhi hain,
Dukhi mt hona..
Par vo dono premi hi hain..
Man me aise beej na bona..
Duniya bs pyaar se bhari kahani nhi hai...
Ye haqiqat har daastan ki..
Koi ishq karta h..
Koi ishq me marta hai..
Lekin log aise bhi hain Jo ye
Ishq nhi jaante..
Pet paalne k alawa kuch aur bhi zaruri h ye Baat nhi maante..
Toh chalo aaj unki kahani sunte hain..

Ye mere abbu hain Jo logo k fate jute silte hain..
Jab se dekha h unko..
Chehra kaala hi paaya h..
Vo insaan hain ya machine..
Ammi ko aaj tk samajh nhi aaya h.. ...

   I can't even remember
   The last holiday
   That we spent together
   And I regret not knowing
   How many seasons
   Of amber leaves passed
   While you were clinging
   To the hope that
   You would see us again
   It must have been rough
   Knowing that
   The beat of your heart
   Lied solely
   In the paper crown
   You thrust upon my head
   When I was just a child
   And that I was never able
   To fully accept
   The responsibilities it bore
   Leaving me now with only
   Harbored love and loss.    JD
