Remembrance: Happy Father’s Day
“I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.” Rumi
The Ocean Moving All Night – Rumi
Stay with us. Don’t sink to the bottom like a fish going to sleep.
Be with the ocean moving steadily all night, not scattered like a rainstorm.
The spring we’re looking for is somewhere in this murkiness
See the night-lights up there traveling together, the candle awake in its gold dish.
Don’t slide into the cracks of the ground like spilled mercury.
When the full moon comes out, look around.
“Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.” Rumi
Inspiration: Happy Father’s Day… my light on the fearless path
You might not be here
But I know your spirit’s near
Each tear and smile … caught
Whenever I’m down
Your comforting light appears
Telling me: Be Strong!
Happy Father’s Day
My light on the fearless path
Guiding me each day
Each Father’s Day, I experience my father’s absence differently. Some years, the memories are wistful, and other years they are reflective. However, one thing remains constant and that is my gratitude for his influence on my life. I know we each come to this conversation with different stories, but, my prayer for each of us is that we will use our experience and memories of this precious relationship to make a positive impact on someone’s life. Happy Father’s Day to you and yours.
