"Dad"
~~*~~

Alone and naked
I entered this world
No pockets, to hide money
Let alone, a taste of honey.
~~*~~
Screaming, my head off, Hungry
I knew not why?
Until, I was given a breast
Unaware, of what it was
Happy I became, at my best.
~~*~~
I remember not, growing pains
Except for those, when I did wrong
My Dad whould discipline me
My Mother would hum me a song.
~~*~~
Dad
Would hold, my hand firmly
Making sure, from him, I did not run
While on our way, to the park
To have a little fun.
~~*~~
I, to chase
Squirrels and sparrows
Dad
To fish and relax
Clearing his mind, for a better tomorrow.
~~*~~
Never I dared, to leave his sight
He taught me
Never to near strangers
And other facts of life.
~~*~~
He showed me,
How to bait a hook
With wiggly worms
Yuk! I couldn't even look.
~~*~~
Dad
Worked hard, till his dying day
One day he left, to work
And there he stayed
His friends surrounded Him
As they all prayed.
~~*~~
Now he is gone
After raising seven
His presence, is still felt
Even while in heaven.
~~~~~~*~~~~~~
