To my father


Always with me

Loving kindness


When I sobbed

felt hope less

You were there

Never gave up on me

Even when I walked away

You gently beckoned

Whisper to me “come back”

Always patient, tender, giving

your love abides within me

a wonderful gift

makes me smile

brightens my day

my heart bursts in joy


and when I sing

you hear me and say

that is my child

who I love so much

I will cherish and love you
