Tantalyzing Tuesday: Sunday, with Love by @SexyMuffyWilson ~ Happy Father's Day

It is the eighth Father's Day since my father's death. And while the reconciliation of time has helped, it changes nothing. Please have a quick read of this reprinted piece then go visit the other participating authors on this link or find them listed like loving memories below, one-by-one.

Happy Father's Day, Dad. Every day, in every way I feel your presence.

Enjoy ~  ☼ o√ ¸.¨¯`*..*˜"*°

Sunday, with Love
Sunday's were always special, but this one was going to prove different. Usually, while everyone slept the early morning hours into the late, the dew dried slowly on the stretching blades. The leaves, heavy waking, yawned into the peeking sun's embrace and we tip-toed through the house to the waiting, darkened kitchen. In these simple quiet hours before the world burst into life, our private laughter, our shared moments, carried the aroma of bacon and eggs up to the others, easing them into the waiting sunlight. 

You were the first man I fell in love with. You taught me that to love and be loved was the single source of joy that life truly offered. I thought that was a special secret, so much was ours alone.  

But, today is not ours, only yours alone. As we say goodbye on this last Sunday together, I wonder if this final painful lesson will ever release the grip on my heart, the heart you gave me, filled with love and loss.

As I escort you into the sunset on this special of all Sundays, you release a strong, inquisitive daughter filled with joy, laughter and, of course, love into the world.
