I remember in years gone by
I’d sit on your lap as my tears you’d dry,
Cocooned in the safety of your embrace,
Your smile that divided your entire face.
Your eyes like beacons, alive and bright,
You’d hold me close, say I’d be alright,
No-one would hurt me when you were there,
Demons or spiders, come if you dare!
You taught me how to ride my bike,
Did things together you thought I’d like,
Held my hand at the loss of a pet,
Shared tea parties using my toy tea set,
Helped with my homework, taught me to play
Cards and games to keep boredom at bay,
Calomined my spots, cleaned scraped knees,
My life is full of such memories.
Family outings, camping and such,
Oh Dad, I miss you so very much.
It doesn’t have to be a special day
For me to remember you this way.
After all this time, I still feel you close,
How lucky I was, compared to most.
