Heaven's Whisper

The whispers of heaven carry your voice
Through the rustling leaves, in the wind's soft poise
I listen for wisdom once spoken by you
In the hush of the dawn, your laughter anew


Your stories still dance in the flicker of stars
Guiding my path, wiping tears' salty mars
Each constellation, a chapter we wrote
Your love the harbor, my undying boat


The moon cradles secrets we once shared at night
Now it beams your courage, your unfathomed might
Its gentle glow, a lantern for my soul
Illuminating memories that make me whole


Sunrises speak of your undying love
A tapestry of colors you dreamt of
The horizon hugs memories of your grace
In every sunrise, I see your face


Your spirit, a compass in celestial realms
Guides me through life, a captain at the helm
Though heaven holds you in its divine clasp
Through verse, I feel your presence in each grasp


Echoes of Your Smile

Upon the sky's vast canvas, thoughts of you
Tinged with the hues of your laughter that flew
Reflecting the joy that lingers on high
In the colors that paint the morning sky


Speak to me, Dad, in the rain's gentle tap
On windows, your rhythm, the world's soft clap
Each drop a note from your heavenly song
In the storm's choir, where your voice belongs


The garden you loved now blooms in your stead
Each petal a word that you once said
Their fragrance, a letter from you, unsent
In nature's embrace, your peaceful accent


As the butterfly flutters, so carefree
It carries the spirit you've lent to me
A dance of colors, blithe and unbowed
A whisper of your smile, silent but loud


In each of these marvels, your hand I feel
Teaching me still that love is the truest seal
Your form may have faded, beyond the blue
But in every poem, Dad, I honor you


Messages on the Breeze

Your words, like scribed leaves, fall gently to me
Autumn's own letters, twirling free
Cascading from heaven's unseen eaves
Your lessons of life rustle through trees


Each sunrise breathes your eternal gaze
A silent vigil, a fiery blaze
It climbs the sky, a ladder of light
Your spirit ascends, an eagle in flight


The mountains stand, firm and ever wise
Their peaks pointing where your kindness lies
In their stillness, they echo your resolve
Through changing seasons, your mystery they solve


The river's course, steadfast and deep
Mirrors the love that you still keep
Through channels unseen, beneath the sod
It flows from earth right up to God


In every element, your essence spun
Your heart's poetry never undone
An ode to a father, in heaven's abode
Timeless and sacred, an eternal ode


Nocturne for My Father

Evenings come with a soft shade of blue
Night's tender cloak, that once hid you
In the dimming light, your silhouette
A figure of peace, in starlight set


Stars twinkle out your coded tales
Guiding me still, as daylight pales
Each one a word, a comforting sign
A lullaby written in the divine


The moon's quiet glow holds your tender might
A silver guardian through the lonely night
In its craters and seas, your stories sleep
In lunar whispers, your memories I keep


The night wind hums through the open space
A nocturne carrying your gentle grace
It sings of a love that darkness can't hide
A father's embrace, eternal and wide


The canvas of night where dreams are spun
You paint my sleep until the rising sun
In every night verse, in each whispered prayer
Heaven's lullaby tells me you're there


Your Legacy in Verses

To pen a poem of a father gone
Is to trace the dusk and await the dawn
In each line, a fragment of your lore
That stirs in my heart, forevermore


In absence, your voice grows ever clear
A tender echo that I hold dear
Each word a brick in the bridge of prose
Connecting our souls, as the river flows


Your wisdom etched in the oaken tree
Roots deep as love's eternity
Branches reaching for the unknown
Seeds of your being, in me sown


Heaven's embrace has stolen you not
For in these poems, you are still sought
The verses carry your laughter’s ring
Your life's melody that I still sing


A tapestry woven from the cosmic loom
Where memories bloom and never succumb
In every stanza, your presence revives
Your legacy in verses forever survives


A Heart's Homage

Distant and close, a paradox of you
Suspended in sky’s everlasting blue
A father's love, timeless and profound
In heaven's chorus, eternally bound


Your gentle words, a canopy of care
Shelter my walks through gardens of prayer
In silent moments, when the world is still
In tranquil breaths, your spirit I feel


In each heartbeat, your presence devout
Echoes within me, never fading out
With ink and passion, I write to appease
The absence that lingers in autumn's leaves


In the chorus of birds at break of day
In sunlight's kiss, and children's play
Your essence resides, never astray
In life’s mosaic, a vivid display


Though heaven may claim your mortal frame
Through these verses, I reclaim your name
A heart's homage, beneath the celestial dome
In every poem, I bring you home


Celestial Father

Above, where stars in galaxies spin
Resides the father I hold within
His laughter twinkles in astral glow
A cosmic bond that will always grow


The night's canvas, a portrait vast
Brushstrokes permanent, memories cast
Each luminary tells of his deeds
Ivory moonbeams fulfilling needs


Upon the milky, celestial trail
His wisdom sails, without fail
Infinite compass, guiding light
In darkness, his teachings burn bright


Ocean tides ebb with his gentle grace
Rhythms of nature, his steady pace
In every crest, his story dives
Through the depths, his spirit thrives


Heaven's poet laureate, scribe divine
In each dream verse, his verses shine
Though my eyes may search an empty space
In heaven’s poems, I find his face


Dad's Garden in the Sky

In heaven's garden where you rest
Amidst the blooms you loved the best
Roses and jasmine tell of your deeds
Beneath the skies, where your soul feeds


Each petal echoes a story told
In vibrant shades, our life unfolds
A spectral array of scents and hues
In nature's hands, no love you lose


Your laughter dances with the bees
In harmonious symphony with the breeze
Their daily toil, a mirror's gleam
Of your labor's love, a living dream


Butterflies, with their fleeting flight
Whisper of your gentle might
A tender touch, a fleeting kiss
Nature’s tribute to your bliss


Through this haven beyond the clouds
Your spirit soars, your voice aloud
Each blossom carries your breath’s tune
Flowering endlessly, in heaven’s room


My Father's Echo

In the silence of the stars above
Resounds the echo of my father's love
A hymn of light in the infinite
A soothing balm, my soul to knit


With every twinkle, a tale is spun
Of days now ended, and days begun
A constellation of memories held
In celestial stories, my heart is swelled


Milky mists of the nebula's veil
Carry your whispers in cosmic gale
Adrift on space-time's tiding sea
Your words of wisdom return to me


Your lessons are carved in the comet's trail
A testament written on cosmic scale
In orbits wide and meteors bright
You guide me still, through the darkest night


The universe with your essence rings
In this vast quiet, my spirit sings
Each poem a tribute to love that grows
As boundless as the cosmos flows


Silent Sentinel

There's a sentinel in the sky that holds
A vigilant gaze as the world unfolds
His eyes the stars, his will the comets’ flight
Watching over me, through day and night


His voice the thunder, when the heavens roar
His calm the sunshine, when the rains are o'er
In tempests and tranquility alike
In nature's arms, his virtues spike


The mountains' might, his resolve denotes
In every stone and note that floats
His essence lingers in the highland air
A fortress of comfort against despair


The softest breeze, his touch to bear
A whispering comforter, ever there
Through fields and valleys, over the peaks
His presence flutters, and softly speaks


My father's watch has not ceased with night
Nor with the breaking of dawn's first light
In these poetic sayings, I seek to amend
The distance between us, my father, my friend
