As it's Father's Day on Sunday
I thought I would write my post today.
I've very often wondered
What you thought of me.
Did I inerit some of your looks
For all the world to see?
You were missing on my wedding day
To walk me down the aisle.
You didn't see the love in my eyes
Or my radiant smile.
I gave you three grandchildren,
A daughter and two sons.
I saw them playing with their dad
They were the lucky ones.
Although my life has been good to me,
There's someone I've never had.
Someone to whom I could say
"Hello how are you dad?"
For your life ended abruptly
When I was only three.
If you were with us now dear dad,
Would you be proud of me?
From the book Negative V.. Positive.
