ForeverMissed

Dad...so many images come to mind
whenever I speak your name;
It seems without you in my life
things have never been the same.

What happened to those lazy days
when I was just a child;
When my life was consumed in you
in your love, and in your smile.

What happened to all those times
when I always looked to you;
No matter what happened in my life
you could make my gray skies blue.

Dad, some days I hear your voice
and turn to see your face;
Yet in my turning...it seems
the sound has been erased.

Dad, who will I turn to for answers
when life does not make sense;
Who will be there to hold me close
when the pieces just don't fit.

Oh, Dad, if I could turn back time
and once more hear your voice;
I'd tell you that out of all the dads
you would still be my choice.

Please always know I love you
and no one can take your place;
Years may come and go
but your memory will never be erased.

Today, Jesus, as You are listening
in your home above;
Would you go and find my dad
and give him all my love.

Muy Especial

Shared by Lucinda Loya on September 11, 2012

Missing my papi today, he used to sing this song to me when i was a little girl, after 17 years of looking for this song after he was murdered and taken from us, i found it today, at 4:22 am, i found it significant because his bday was 2/11, i know hes looking over me and i miss him and loved him so much, i didnt know what this song meant till now, and it has more meaning now than it ever did. I LOVE YOU PAPI, tu eres muy especial, y te llevo en mi corazon.

Nobody will fight your fights

Hector bought me a toy. It was a foam disk shooter. When he bought it we were going home(walking). I shot one disk and it got stuck on a Letter of a Local Business sign. He got mad. So we kept walking and he says, "wait here". I watch him walk to some Hatian kid and talk for a bit and The kid looks at me and walks up and punched me in the face. I looked at my dad, requesting help with just my stare. He said, Don't look at me. He punched you. Hit him back!" So i fought the kid and when it was all over me and my dad continued on home. He stopped me and said,"Nobody is gonna fight your fights for you. You wil be alone just like you were back there." Best lesson I ever learned.thank you Hector.
