Hey Dad, One Year Already

One year on, already.

So much happens, the world changes, our lives go on, and it's even easy to forget that Dad was around.

Easy to forget until a Status Quo song comes on, or ABBA. Until I laugh in a particular way, or pick my nails as he used to. Someone will say something small and I will be held for seconds in memory.

People remind me that he's no longer around and I smile, "Yeah, one year on, already".

The moments flow on without Dad, the universe reveals itself more and more, and we all trundle on.
