Ioan Galasiu – In Loving Memory

This post is written in the memory of my beloved father Ioan Galasiu who passed away 24 years ago. My mother was 36 at that time, she had the age I have now. I was 12 years old then, young enough to not realise what was happening, old enough to remember everything for the rest of my life.

If I could I would bring roses to my father, as he loved them so very much. But since I am so far away I bring him the roses of thought and I remember him with all my love.

Queen B&W

Every year when Christmas is near I humbly remember what was then and I try to imagine what may have been if dad would have been still alive. Yet I think that God called him earlier because He loved him too much.

Till the day when we shall meet again rest in peace dad, I love you.

Ioan Galasiu

In loving memory of Ioan Galasiu, *25.06.1949  +22.12.1989

    • I was 12 my dear Felicia. Young enough not to understand what was happening, old enough to remember everything…

  2. I send you a poem of german writer Friedrich Rückert, he wrote this after the death of two of his children:

    Du bist ein Schatten am Tage
    Und in der Nacht ein Licht;
    Du lebst in meiner Klage
    Und stirbst im Herzen nicht.

    Wo ich mein Zelt aufschlage,
    Da wohnst du bei mir dicht;
    Du bist mein Schatten am Tage
    Und in der Nacht mein Licht.

    Wo ich auch nach dir frage,
    Find’ ich von dir Bericht,
    Du lebst in meiner Klage
    Und stirbst im Herzen nicht.

    Du bist ein Schatten am Tage,
    Doch in der Nacht ein Licht;
    Du lebst in meiner Klage
    Und stirbst im Herzen nicht.

    Ela, God bless you!
