Remembering Adam Cerkas – To Dawn
You know I’ve never been one much to commit, I kept a lot to myself, I could have been better, I’ll admit…
On the outside you’d see a reserved kind of man, not staking a claim, not appearing to plan,
But I always was thinking of you and the kids, hoping for things and reflecting on “should have did’s” .
There were a lot of opportunities that never came to be; to spend time or just talk, sometimes I was as thick as a tree,
You really were the best part of my earthly life, and I missed the opportunity to make you my wife.
For that I can’t change, or make things amend, so I’ll do what I can, all my Love, to you I’ll send…
I want you to know that I think of you still, I’m gone from your life, for now, but I’ll see you again, I know I will,
And Dustin and Miranda, they are a part of me too, I Love them as well, for me please bid them adieu…
All of us Loved each other, yet struggled we did, we just needed to talk and to hope, and deal with all our feelings amid.
We spent time up north, on the water and shore, we fished and we laughed and we still looked for more,
Vacations were good, many things we did see, I cherish the time we had, indeed that was key.
Too often, time is not valued enough, not spent with those we Love, occupied with too much other stuff.
I’m not sure if I’ve told you of the gift that you had, showing patience for me, for that I am glad.
Your Love and devotion to me was admiring, it was present and steady, it was always inspiring,
I knew that our Love had some things to work out, and I knew you’d be there forever, no doubt.
The best that we can manage from now, is to pray for each other, and get by somehow.
There is no good reason to not work it out, it’s never too late, of this I wish I could shout,
Change is possible for everyone still, regardless of state, it just takes a firm will.
I’m still learning and yearning to Love, I’m getting good lessons from the “Big Guy”, above,
Life doesn’t end or cease to exist, when our body stops working; our soul and spirit persist.
Of that I am certain, I can first-hand verify, although people aren’t sure and forever ask “why?”
I guess that’s where Faith and Hope and Love have their place, each is a part of eternal grace,
Together, our being is nurtured and grows, Love thrives and endures, it continually flows…
So as you can see, I’ve already learned more, than I had all before, and I still need to explore.
And I hope and I pray to be with you again, to hold you and Love you, I just don’t know when;
So continue to look for me when you need my embrace, just think of or imagine or envision my face,
I’ll be there for you, for all of your life, and when I greet you in Heaven you will become forever, my wife…
