Dream of Dad

Dad, I dreamed of you last night,
You came to me and held me tight,
I leaned into your warm embrace,
Looked up into your kindly face.
I must have been a child last night,
In later years we were the same height,
But you come to me when something worries,
Your presence lingers, never hurries.
It felt good to have you there,
To feel your fingers touch my hair,
You didn’t speak, but I felt your love,
And know you watch from up above.
I miss you so, and Mum of course,
The two of you such a powerful force,
Always there in my time of need,
The sadness came as dreams recede.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    So very good! It brought tears – not necessarily of sadness but a wistfulness for what was.
