In memory of my Dad Milton Ellinghuysen (09/08/2013)
Seven years ago:

Sept. 8, 2006

Dad,

Do you remember when you

were young

Trying to put a puzzle together

and things just didn’t fit or belong

And no matter how hard you would

try, everything would just go wrong

and you couldn’t laugh

but instead would sigh

Do you remember when I was a kid

and made you and Ma smile

from the things that I did?

“Happy go lucky” never a doubt

and now Dad, I can’t figure it all out.

Someone told me “Get over it, he’s

gone” and then I read a memorial

from someone they loved

A year or seven

Doesn’t change a thing

For only your heart

reminds you of that terrible pain

Sometimes as I drive down the road

memories come rushing in

and seem to unfold

it’s almost like being able to see

your face

And that smile that no other

could take its place

Losing our home and you in

less than one year

and Rog being sick

Doesn’t spare any tears

I go off alone and hide the ache

but there’s no one to reach out

to Dad, for God’s sake

I never felt so all alone

all that I wish is

you were back “home.”

I miss you so very much, Dad

Your Bonnie
