Unwanted guest
that stayed too long,
was here to steal
his favorite song.

It took his strength,
and then his hair,
he kept his smile
and rocked his chair.

It took his pride,
and made him shake,
he kept his wink,
and did not break.

It took his size,
and then his mind,
he kept his heart
and was still kind.

It took his hopes,
and then his life,
he kept his soul
and glowed so bright.

My children sing
his greatest song,
it lives in them
where it belongs.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

Today would have been my father’s 79th Birthday, he passed away 24 years ago but always remains in our heart. So grateful to have had his presence in my life.💕🙏💕
