MY DAD







MY DAD



How can I write a poem about you Dad
Because I will feel so very very sad,
Although time has passed I am still missing you
I`ll think of the stories you told me that you knew.



I remember the gun you had in the war
And all the wonderful places that you saw,
The little mascot dog who was called `Ack` `Ack`
He stayed by your side even under attack.



"Elsie you must learn how many beans make 5
It will be good, it will help you to survive",
I know how many beans make 5, I did well
So the same thing to my children I did tell.



You would ask me `How long is a piece of string?`
I was wrong no matter what answer I`d bring,
It took some time but I got there in the end
Your quizzes would almost drive me round the bend.



You know I loved all your funny little ways Dad
And when I think of you I do feel quite sad,
I missed a lot of chances and know I should
Have said `I love you` and now I wish I could.



You know that you will always be in my heart
I have funny stories which I can impart,
But I`ll always remember the day you went
God wanted you and so the angels he sent.



The memories you leave me with are happy
Tho` you`re not here, content I`ll have to be,
I`ll always smile when I think of your funny ways
Our time together were just like sunny days.
