My Father's Gone...

My Father has passed into the beyond...He was Born on January 7, 1927 and he passed away on December 26, 2011...I will truly miss him...but I have made my peace with Him. We have lived together with my father since 1998...up to 2011 and my family moved out of the house that we stayed together by August of 2011 more than 13 years...before I left for my job in Qatar in 2009 and saw him again this March 2011 after I came home for vacation ...Last time we spoke was when I left again for Qatar in May of 2011....now he can join my mother and they can be together again after 29 years since she passed away...I would always remember my father's devotion to my mother...he would always visit her in her resting place...anytime he can visit no matter what day...or month it was...He never misses an All Saints or All souls day without spending the day with my mother in her grave site...lighting those chinese candles...I never ask him why he does visit oh so often...it could have been survivor's guilt or true love...either way...I believe it was his true love that has left him...to go on this life without my mother...He only stop visiting when his health has started to fail him and his body has become frail...He tried to raise us all the best he could...with my mother...and he has raised us well...He lived a full life...at 84 years old...its just a matter of 2 weeks he could have chalked up his 85 birthday...but that was not meant to be...It must have been quite lonely when you start to lose all your friends to the grim reaper...one by one they have gone...and when its your birthday...the familiar faces of friends are dwindling down...I could not wish for a better life for him...May your soul and mother's soul may now rest in peace and be together once more...These are are last images taken of my parents before their passing...My father's picture taken with his youngest grand daughter almost two months prior to his passing...and my mother's picture taken before she pass away...and my mother's tombstone...

Hold Me Now

D
I have a picture,
Bm
pinned to my wall.
G
An image of you and of me and we're laughing and
A
loving it all.
D
Look at our life now,
Bm
tattered and torn.
G
We fuss and we fight and delight in the tears that we
A
cry until dawn

D Bm
Hold me now, warm my heart
G A
stay with me, let loving start (let loving start)
D
You say I'm a dreamer,
Bm
we're two of a kind
G
Both of us searching for some perfect world we
A
will never find
D
So perhaps I should leave here,
Bm
yeah yeah go far away
G
But you know that there’s no where that I'd rather be than
A
with you here today
[Chorus]
D
You ask if I love you,
Bm
well what can I say?
G
You know that I do and if this is just one of those

A
games that we play
D
So I'll sing you a new song,
Bm
please don't cry anymore
G
I'll ask your forgiveness, though I don't know just what I'm
A
asking it for
