Hay Papi! Another year has gone by Now I have stopped waiting for you I feel the permanence of your no longer here But still longing for you Wanting your love and support Needing your guidance and advice Aching inside Knowing I will never ever get it This year has gone by so fast So much has happened And all without YOU During this year something very special has happened A gift has been given to us, Our daughter Shaily was born, A real present to me and us all, Just as she is called שי – לי And guess what?! She has your eyes, Your beautiful blue eyes, Full of love, understanding and patience, Your eyes that told the whole story, without words On one hand, Shaily has given us all complete happiness and enjoyment On the other, the pain that she will never know you, You will never hold her Shaily is teaching me, that life goes on And that this is simply the cycle of life Happy and sad, sweet and bitter all at the same time Papi, I miss you I really really wish you could be here, I still have questions for you, I still need your hugs I simply want you here with us I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU!!!!
