the seneity prayer...
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

You’re a permanent part of my heart.
I miss you like no other,
Even though I told you I wouldn’t fall apart.
One day I got the phone call from your cell phone number,
But it wasn’t you so I began to wonder.
I knew what was to be said.
I just couldn’t believe it even though I knew it stood ahead.
Everyday we prayed for just a little bit longer,
But everyday you always came out stronger.

So I closed my eyes and wished it away instead,
I guess my wish was a disgrace,
Because when I needed you, you were no longer in my space.
I think of you at least once a day.
No one understood my pain,
It’s just too hard to explain.

In loving memory of,
William L. Yarbrough III “Daddy”
