Four Hours Twelve Minutes and Fifteen seconds

Four Hours Twelve Minutes and Fifteen seconds 4/12/15

If life would grant me one of my wishes then it would be for Him to
Give us all Four Hours Twelve Minutes and Fifteen seconds with you
Now I would not be selfish and take up all of your time
Based on the family I would be second in line
Just to see you with that look that commands the attention of all
Or to hear your voice and record the call
So much I want to tell you, seems like forever since you went home to rest
We would not bother you Daddy but know that this life it is a test.
So only grant us  Four Hours Twelve Minutes and Fifteen seconds with you
Please be so kind, it is the Christian thing to do
Daddy I know you watching us through the joy, the happiness, the sunshine and the rain.
Thinking forever of you Daddy and all those beautiful memories that you helped us gain
If only time were able to stand still and allow you to be near
We could calm our restless longings if just your voice we could hear
We only want Four Hours Twelve Minutes and Fifteen seconds of time in this place
Your presence Daddy will bring so much joy to this space
I miss you like crazy and wish you were here
Just give me those Four Hours Twelve Minutes and Fifteen seconds Daddy to help wipe away my tears

I love you Daddy to life and beyond! Happy birthday to you!!!!

Daddy Always With Us


image

(This post is lengthy, but worth the time it takes to read it. Thanks in advance)

November 3, 1989 is a day that caused my family’s life  to be turned upside down. My favorite man in all the planet, William Henry Clay, Sr. moved from life on earth to death and living in his eternal home.

This week marks 25 years since, Daddy moved his address from earth to heaven. I so desire to write about where I am and the struggle to share my recall of my Daddy.

My fingers have made several attempts to express how much I miss my Daddy and wish I could have him to take care of everything.

On Monday November 3rd, as my sister Greta and I prepared to return to Florida from our hometown of Augusta, we saw a Facebook post that Kim Lockett Holmes had passed away. I could not believe nor wrap my head around this news. Already trying to think positively about Daddy, this news intensified my sadness.

The power of social media is a blessing and a curse. Like wildfire my Facebook timeline was filled with fellow Lucy Laney High School Wildcats sharing their condolences to Kim’s son and family. As my mind raced and sadness crept in, I recalled that Kimmie was always smiling and now her soul was resting in heaven.

Now it is November 16th, thought I would work on this post again. Well in the last few weeks I have been stunned by the death of a childhood friend and child I watched grow from little lady to young lady.

Monday the 10th came and I was hit with a text message that made me stop in my tracks. The death angel had struck again  This time it was one of my former Sunday School students. At 18 years young, Jayla decided to take her own life. I just kept saying this does not make sense. Why Lord? Why?

I really cannot believe that Jayla is gone. What a beautiful face tied to a troubled spirit. Over the years I watched as her grandmother and aunt poured into her life and offered her a strong foundation. Jayla’s family wanted to see her be and do her best. May Jayla’s soul be at rest.

I still could not finish the post about Daddy. Every time I started, I just could not focus.

I still was not able to write about my Daddy. Thoughts were in my head, yet my pen was not ready.

Monday the 24th came and all I wanted was some good news. Well again I was told of a tragic death. An innocent young child had died and she had touched the lives of many in my circle.

This has been a trying month. November is traditionally a time of gratitude and thankfulness. Even as we pause to celebrate Thanksgiving, I had thoughts of these souls that had transitioned from earth to eternal rest. Thinking of them brought me back to memories of my Daddy.

If I could only have time to tell him all the things that happened in my life for the last 25 years. (We would need a little time).I would love to hear my Daddy’s voice and his words of wisdom and see him smile. I would tell Daddy I have learned a few lessons:
-You cannot buck the system (Order is here for a reason)
-Education will take you far but, don’t forget common sense (I learn something new daily)
-The world owes you nothing so don’t stop showing them who you are (Always a Clay)
-Family is your blood and the community you are surrounded with in life (Momma, Greta, and William Jr., love them to life)
-Keep God first and everything else will fall in line (All the glory and honor)
-Never stop believing in yourself ( Because of you, I can and I will)

As November comes to a close, I am glad I found the strength to finish this post. It allowed me to share my feelings as I recall my Daddy. We who remain here on earth experience  the emotional roller of feelings. We encounter the good, the bad, the happy, the sad, the joy, the pain, the heartache, the love, the hate, the birth and the death in this thing called life!

I am honored to call myself a card carrying, “Daddy’s Girl For Life”. William Henry Clay,Sr you are forever in my heart and I miss you like crazy.

Peaceful rest Kim, Jayla, little baby girl and so many others that transitioned from life to death this month of November.

Hey Daddy


Hey Daddy
Seems like yesterday since you went away. Thoughts of you flood my mind a many a day!
(Cause you are always on my mind)

Hey Daddy
This is my 28th Father’s day and it’s still hard to deal
Life without your presence feels so unreal
(Cause you left that lasting impression)

Hey Daddy
I can see your distinctive frame
Yes my together and sharp Daddy William Henry Clay Sr, your name
(Cause most folks just called you Clay)

Hey Daddy
That striking salt and pepper curly fro
Styled to perfection, they better know
(Cause you had that hair)

Hey Daddy
I see you with shiny diamonds and gold rings
Always flashy projecting like a king
(Cause you were one)

Hey Daddy
Whether rocking a suit a jogger or your Sunday best
You lived to rise up above the rest
(Cause you could)

Hey Daddy
I hear those rings and pocket change clinging in harmony
I hear it with others brings you back to me
(Cause that how we could find you)

Hey Daddy
I inhaled your fragrance so fresh and clean
Filling the air as a calling card was your thing
(Cause you loved to smell well)

Hey Daddy
You were full of wisdom and advice
Miss hearing from you on this journey called life
(Cause you were versed on everything)

Hey Daddy
Wish you had never gone away from here
Yet I know you are above
Just crave a moment for the essence of your love
(Cause you are missed and loved)

Hey Daddy…
Happy Father’s Day 2016

Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip for April 12,2011-Ode to William Henry Clay, Sr. (Vol.2, Iss.2)


My Daddy

Tuesday Thoughts were a bit scattered today

It seems so many things were coming my way

As much as I tried to focus, thoughts would not stay

Each time I felt I had captured it  did quickly decay

I know what really has me all caught up in disarray

You are running rampant in my mind keeping my thoughts at bay

I think back on the memories of you and smile at the sky in heaven where you lay

Happy birthday  Daddy William Henry Clay

Daddy you were and therefore I am, thanks for life, for love, and  for a wonderful legacy!
