POEM: A POEM FOR MY FATHER


A poem for my father

What’s left of you is but a memory.
The words of wisdom you fed us when we were young,
the laughs we shared, but now,
all your footsteps have been washed away by
the rain of yesterday.
Funny how I try to trace those footsteps, trying to be
like you, adding my own of course and yet the song is still the same.
A song I still sing every day.

You were my super-dad
and I still wear your emblem on my chest
to show those who never knew,
that you were the best.
The man who put his family first
before the rest,
and some say we were blessed.

‘Tomorrow is another day’, your favorite quote
Sharp words from a man that was full of hope,
as bold as a dragon,
you can imagine.
A man full of flaws, but who let us see perfection.

When the sun sets to the east, that’s when we will meet.
I will tell you about all the stories you would have missed.
Tears of joy as they roll down my cheeks,
a man I am but such emotions I can’t resist
I can say I am proud,
proud of the man I have become,
so good how it feels to say it out loud.
I am proud to be your son.

Cheers to the memories created and to the love we shared
Cheers to the life we had,
Cheers to you dad.
