My heart, My Dad
My heart lies bleeding
But still strong
Strong enough to be there
For my Daddy, my Dad, my Father
In his latter years, his final day's.
My handsome, strong funny Dad
My first love,protector, friend, parent.
A constant throughout my life
Nurturing, protecting, loving
A sharp word wherever needed
To keep me on the right path.
Encouragement by the bucketful
A sense of humour so cheeky,
That age appropriate changed with the years.
A man who gave me confidence
To be me, the me I want to be.
We can talk the hind legs off a donkey
On any subject,
You choose it we have a view.
My Dad, loved by so many he has met
But never more than our late Mum
Or us Kids, and his Grandchildren and Great-grandchildren.
As the days pass
And your body weakens
We that are only here because of you
Send you Love, and strength
We are here for you every day.
We will carry you, and ease your burden
As you have carried us and loved us
You can rest, on a soft bed of Love
That you created and nurtured.
A bed of love that will keep you eternally alive, within our hearts.
Love you Dad
