Fathers Day Thoughts

Here’s a Poem I wrote for Fathers Day, not everyone had a great father but I did so some may have mixed feelings about this day, as people do for Mothers Day and other special days people celebrate on Facebook which can bring sadness to some in fact, remember that, have good day

Fathers Day Thoughts

dear Dad I miss you so much

I remember all the days

as a little girl I would roller skate up and down the path

waiting for your return

from work in town

sometimes a present you would bring

some tropical fish

for my tank

they survived the journey home on the train

for this I would thank!

a book to read What Katy Did and What She Did Next

A Guitar

All sorts of things

you were a lovely dad

and mum too

I couldn’t have wished for nicer folk

to be my mum and dad

you were kind and generous

calm and kind

sorted my problems

soothed my troubled mind

I remember Christmas time walking our dog Trixie

and checking the Christmas Trees in the windows

which was best

we put them to the test

playing golf in the garden

and tennis too

badminton ball games

just me and you and brother and mum

we did have some fun

swimming in the sea

you’d say come on in!

it was cold and id shiver

and dither

but would go for a swim

you would stand on your head

and crossed leg in yoga pose

and that was a way to relax

and ease the mind

of troubled times

then my children you gave much love

with fun and games and silly names

jokes aplenty

funny old songs

cockney songs and Vera Lynne

that was your thing

playing the keyboard

and guitar with a song

reading books

and dancing round

they just loved to play

and be the clown

with Grandad

Those days of happiness now memories in my heart

my childhood days and those of my children too

seem the best years I would have and been through

The children have grown

they have flown

a husband mean never to be seen

and you and mum at peace

dancing in heaven

to George Gershwin band

the song you sang which stays in my heart

We’ll meet again

you would sing to me

and say to me we will meet again

I know we will

it has to be true

because I really do miss you

as I sit here alone

and wonder what is it all about

but there is no doubt

you were the dearest father a girl could have

and the memories are treasured in my heart

til we meet again….

dear dad

and mum too …

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at https://rosypoems.com
