Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 When Dads say goodbye
It seems they held their own some time
 Some time ago when things seemed fine
 But time does age the best of them
 Those known as father and best friend

 It breaks the hearts of sons and daughters
 Of grandsons too, mothers and fathers
 It leaves a hurt no one will see
 Inside of one whose soul does grieve

But know dear niece his final days
 Were spent with you and will always
 Be treasured by an old man's heart
 Those he so loved, though now apart

 It's just for now, no not forever
 As time allowed but cannot sever
 Your bond with him you miss this day
 In life both his and yours he played

 I'm sure you'll see him well again
 When GOD dictates and Heaven sends
 A call for you to come and be
 With Abe again dear Desiree

Written for my niece Desiree on the loss of her father Abraham Sanabria

When Dads say goodbye
