November 6th

Is the anniversary

Date that my

Papa Lathem

Died it was

A sad day in

Of our lives.

Over time

Some might

Think a loved

One’s memory

Will fade

But it never

Does. It’s been

Over 10 years

And I remember

Every detail

About my papa’s death

As if it were


It is true with

Time your sadness

And pain heal a

Little everyday!

But the memories

Of missing someone you dearly love

never leave

Your brain.
