Remembering Dad (poem)

Reflections for Father’s Day

Remembering Dad

You were there for me from the day my life begun,
On your back, you would sometimes carry me for fun.
You hand holding mine, there to help me as I grew,
Standing there by my side, your love I always knew.

There were those times when I would follow you around,
Often in the garage, you and I would be found.
Helping you in those ways that only a child could,
Handing you that ‘large spanner’, or holding some wood.

Throughout my childhood you helped me to understand,
No matter how great or small, you would lend a hand.
Encouraging me to try that little bit more,
Helping me through all those times when I was unsure.

Even when I grew up and my life moved along,
That bond between us always remained very strong.
Our conversations could go on for quite a while,
Always our goodbyes came with a kiss, and a smile.

It may have been a few years since you passed away,
But within my memories, it’s just yesterday.
Those times of shared adventures, I am still aware,
For deep within my heart, you are still living there.

Yesterday I lost you (poem for the bereaved)


For all those who lost the love of their life yesterday
(Especially for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II)
160608 Rose B2 1 - Copy
Yesterday I lost you

Yesterday I lost you, my love, my sweetheart and truest friend,
Yesterday upon this earth, our time together came to an end.
You were always there by my side, together we were strong,
For so many years you shared your love, together we belong.
We laughed, we played, and through troubles times we walked together,
Although you may have passed away, your love will stay forever.
