11 years, an eternity some days, but a split second on others.
You are forever part of my life,
I love and live by the rules you instilled in me,
I learn each day how important you have been in moulding me.
I am your echo, your legacy.
As my children are mine, carrying with them a part of me and, therefore, a part of you.
I hope they grow in to great men like you were.
I refuse to live my life in anger at your early death,
instead I remember the days we had.
I remember feeling safe and cradled in your hands.
I remember joy and freedom.
You are my hero, my guiding star.
I love you Dad and miss you each and everyday.
