The introspective month of November
Missing Kaysee’s Bob
Written By Allison 11/14/2004 (only the first word has changed)
Nine years ago today, you passed away.
I just want to sob and lay.
I just want to pray and pray,
To God, to you and all about you.
I think of you and Kaysee with all A.J. and I do.
What would we be doing? Where would we be?
Our paths are so different with you in Heaven free.
I feel selfish ‘cuz I feel sorry for me, A.J. and most of all Kaysee.
You were our rock,
Our sense of family,
The fiancé, the step-dad and the daddy,
Then on November 14th you were gone in tragedy.
I remember trying to cope,
And only being able to mope.
I cried a lot for your daughter, who you left here on earth,
I’m sure you were sad too, ‘cuz your life’s joy was her birth.
She always filled your life with pride, meaning and drive,
I know she still does in Heaven, just like when you were alive.
We do the best we can, just like we said we would.
And we’re moving on, day by day, like you said we should.
But, we would give about anything to bring you back if we could.
We miss you Bob! I miss you! I miss your loud-ass voice and laugh – so much it makes me sad.
I miss the way you made me smile even when I was mad.
You’d crack a joke, give a grin or say a silly lie,
Then I couldn’t help but smile and laugh no matter how hard I would try.
I guess the moral of this story is simple, but it’s true.
A.J. and I are thankful to both Kaysee and you.
Thankful that you shared yourselves with my son and me,
Thankful because now, in our hearts, you both will always be.
You’re both in our hearts and right there you’ll stay,
For always, and forever, for infinity, and a day.
We will forever love you guys, for always, come what may.
