With tears I realized how long it had been…
It smacked me down and I cried.. How I miss you here!
Your corporeal presence, your laugh, your wit, your warmth your love…
Then My gaze rose towards the heavens,
And you were gazing back at me
And I know you are forever, my sweet Shell!
With Love, Dad (grooving on some classic R&B as well as some Coltrane).
See you in those Stellar regions, ma belle!
