Father’s Day 2017

Today is the day my dad died. 14 years ago. It was one day before my birthday and 2 days after father’s day.

it’s always weird this time of year
that three days coincide.
Father’s Day, The Day I was born,
And the day that you died.

I remember when they told us
you wouldn’t make it through
But I didn’t want you to pass,
On my birthday, yeah it’s true.

they unhooked all those blinking lights
they shut off the machines,
remember you told me once,
You wanted peaceful dreams?

I know you weren’t ready,
I sure wasn’t too.
For you to leave the planet earth
But somehow you just knew.

So dad again I miss …

Father’s Day 2014

wow. 11 years of father’s days.
have passed without you here.
but know dear dad the words you taught,
Still echo in my ear.

I think of all your loving ways,
your imperfections too.
But mainly how you never gave up
And you always followed through.

You always had a zest for life
With all it’s hills and valleys
And when the going started getting rough
Your strength always rallied.

So just know on this Father’s Day
Your philosophies still guide me.
“love what you do, and it’s never work,
your passion sets you free.”

So thank you dad for everything,
for the woman you helped me be.
One tiny thing I wish …

Happy Birthday Dearest Dad

Dear Dad,

It’s your birthday,
Not sure what else to say.
I miss you very much every day.
Loving wishes sent your way.

I know this note is kind of brief.
Death stole you from us like a thief
And though I’m no longer mired in grief.
I know you’re here- that’s my belief.

Always thinking about you
For you
With you.

Happy birthday dearest dad.
Your ever lovin’ Lara.

One more year


I hardly can think of what to say.

12 years gone, 4380 days.

The sun is shining so damn bright,

As it did on that dark blight

The space where once two towers stood

Is now a fountain in that neighborhood.

And yet still, no one has learned

War rages on, deaths unearned

Men, women, children, still pray for life

Governments battle, won’t give up their fights.

It’s just not alright.

But today I remember,

That day in September.

We can never forget

Those souls, nor the threat.

Not sure when or if ever,

The world will endeavor

But carry on we must.

In God we trust?

Rest …

Father’s Day: 10 Years


Dear Dad:

I hardly have the energy,
To post this post today,
You see the winds of time and life
Have blown it all away.

Nothing’s been the same,
Since you went away,
But then again , nothing’s changed
In the daily day to day.

My loss of you is still as strong,
Though I don’t cry much any more,
Just when a song or poem or thought,
Comes charging through the door.

So daddy, I don’t mean to cut this short
But I have some things to do.
I just want to say, short and sweet.
I’ll NEVER stop loving you.

And maybe you’re above,
or …

Waldy’s Pizza

We are now
Used to be that my favorite pizza was Vezzo’s but not any more.  A lot cheaper and a lot more delicious is Waldy’s on 6th Avenue and 27th Street.  Hopefully they don’t get too big, have too many stores, and lose it.
