Time with you
You came into my life and immediately turned it so very bright. Never in world did I have a child such as you, Sascha baby your love was the finest of true. From the beginning til the end you were my constant companion, the best of friends. If you would have had your way, from your side I would never have strayed. Home with you was your dream come true. I remember your pout when I had to go out, but inside I hurt too and wished I could have remained with you.
When I returned your joy burst through and I am sure the neighbors heard you too. I had no doubt as you circled about, your world was complete and your daddy gleamed. Contentment returned and your heart was no longer concerned daddy was home, all to your own.
You enjoyed a dance around the pool and getting in too, the Frisbee or a ball with dad you felt you had it all. To sit and watch for hours on end your daddy looking at a thing called a book, even in this you found happiness and bliss. I loved every minute I spent with you for I found the same comfort in us two.
Now the days I spend alone and at times put off going home. The joyful greeting at the front door I sit knowing it is no more. In the car I wait for a minute, to prepare for the silence of which I continue to give penance. This fact is hard to swallow and it leaves me with a sense of being bare and hollow. You enriched my life greatly, without measure without fake means so now I will forever hold you in high esteem.
