Alan Brunton



for Alan

from your ever-loving daughter 

I cannot use words to express how much you mean to me
Now that you’re gone all my words seem to have dried up.

Days go by so slowly
The clock ticks so loudly.
Nothing seems real anymore.

All I know is you are and always will be
My number one hero and guide.

If I had known my days with you were numbered
I would have soaked up more of your thoughts.
You are the greatest teacher, I am your grateful student.

Tears come as I write this.
You are always with me.
I love you.
