A promise to a daughter

Today is Father's Day but I am a fatherless daughter.  This day is not a day of celebration for me but instead a reminder I am a ship out to sea without an anchor, a bird flying aimlessly along with nowhere to land.  Today I choose to honor my father with the sign he gave to me after he died.  That very first day I had to go out into the world and face it without him there was the biggest brightest rainbow I had ever seen.  It took my breath away and no matter my route into work that day it was always in front of me--it should not have been yet it was.

It still feels like just yesterday he was with us but no--he is gone
Even though I wanted to use black I chose white stamping instead as I truly believe the rainbow he sent to me was a promise everything will be ok
All anyone who has lost a loved one can do is hope they will continue 
Hope they will make them proud
Hope to be with them again soon

Happy Father's Day to my dad who is in heaven.  I love you, Daddy
