Just wanted you to know
I didn't get a chance to say goodbye.
Although, I did get a chance to kiss your cheeks,
touch your hands and tickle your feet.
Made you smile, once more, didn't I?
I didn't get a chance to tell you
I would keep all your dreams alive,
and keep your name in a halo of lights.
I didn't get a chance to hear you say,
I am in pain,
just one last night
with my family, Lord!
I didn't hear you say,
My journey's done, I am tired now,
can I rest in peace.
I did get a chance to hear you hum
your favorite christian song,
lift your hand
and feel God's presence in you.
You shared your last smile
you felt your family's love
A God sent presence surrounded you.
I had no chance to say goodbye
for the very next day,
You choose a deep sleep
and your will was done.
I remember you said
I love you, daughter, wife and son
with a sleepy whisper
Last spoken words.
words that fulfilled my soul.
No chance to say goodbye
Rest now, rest In peace, my dear daddy,
Dedicated to my mother, brother Aaron and family
In memory of my dad
Dr. Aaron R. Clark Jr.
