"Meet Me In The Pumpkin Patch"

This is one of the poems that I wrote after my dad died,
the sunset that is in the background is a picture that
I took at the end of our 2006 party.
It was a beautiful sunset to end our day with,
not knowing at the time it would be the
last pumpkin party that we would have with Dad.
I planted the 2008 seeds shortly after Father's Day this year
I thought I was doing okay but then for one brief moment I
remembered the times with Dad then the tears came.
"Rest your sweet old soul"

I remember my Uncle Clyde when he looked just that young. And he never did change for me. And the real thrill is that he looks like that now and forever. Love him.
