I know you loved my poems so here’s another for you .
THE FIRST YEAR X
The first year without you well what can I say
It destroyed us back then & still does to this day .
Nothing has got easier , give it time people say , but in fact it gets harder as I miss you more everyday .
365 days have past since that day that I saw you last , I still don’t get it it still doesn’t make sense , the pain stays with me it’s still so intense .
I try to stay focused & live my life everyday as I know if there’s a heaven you would want me this way . I try to make contact , I look up to the sky
I have a special star that’s the brightest up high . I ask it lots of questions but no answers come back , all I want to hear is “ I’m fine my nicnac .
So the first year without you has been hard & strained , I’ve cried so many tears & nothing is the same .
The mornings are darker without you here & the nights just get longer throughout the past year . I tell everyone about you & cant help but smile when I do , my chest puffed out proud when i speak about you .
Well dad if there’s a heaven & I hope that there is , I hope you can see me & an give me a kiss .
I pray you are happy cracking jokes like you did , telling your smithy stories with your smile so big .
I will continue my life , live through the pain as I’m sure deep inside I will see you again , but until that day comes don’t you ever forget that your nicnacnoo loves you with so much respect

his Life

The start

David John Smith

David John Smith came into this world on the 19th March, 1949.  He was born in Wood Lane in Dagenham, to very proud parents Violet and Jim.  Dave was joined a few years later by his sister Leslie, and they both grew up having a great relationship with their half siblings, Johnny, Jimmy and Shirley - Dave loved them all dearly and always referred to them all as just his brothers and sisters - they all meant so much to him.
