A Poem for my Father


I remember like it was yesterday

that we talked, joked, and laughed

and now that you are not here

that is all in the past

I can see clear as day

a smile spreading across your face

letting me know that no matter what

everything will be okay

every day that you were with me

you never left my side

you were always there to welcome me 

with your arms open wide

but no matter what happens 

no one could ever come between

because at the end of the day

it was always you and me

I am hurt that you are no longer here

and sometimes it makes me sad

but I was always thankful for you

my dear, loving Dad
