Loved ones

stay with you after death;


They continue to live

on in your heart and soul.

They continue to haunt

your memories and dreams.


My father passed on

17 years ago

but still makes cameos

& guest spots in my dreams 

from time to time


and amazingly,

after all these years,

he’s still calling me “Dumbass”

I too use to get called dumbass (not by my dad but by a good friend). I can hear my dad laugh at me from the heavens though.
