200 Tuesdays - My Dad

When fathers day comes around it naturally brings up memories of my Dad, already written about here.

As I am currently short on time, as is usual at the moment, here is a poem inspired by my Dad.


We're Ok

What would I be if you were still here
If I never had to shed a tear
Many more nights of playing with my hair
Or whispering goodnight as we climb the stair
How many more lives would you have saved
Instead you had to endure and be brave
We lost you little by little for a while
We grew to be strong and survive in style
Your passing led me to the right place
to see my husbands beautiful face
Two gorgeous girls now of my own
I hope to never leave them alone
Our memories I still hold dear
Though you are no longer near
We are happy now in all we do
Though every day we still miss you

Tagled Lou has also recently been writing about her Father here in a beautifully written piece about his passing, I urge you to take a look.
