He worked so hard all his life ,

to pay the bills and provide .

Somehow through the thick and thin ,

you could say we all survived .

With rotating shifts and roster days,

he had some days off .

He liked wee apple buns

and when he spoke his voice was soft .

He put a few bob away ,

for holidays every year .

We walked to far away places,

when the weather was clear .

He took me to a mountain top

and pointed out to sea .

"You can see the coast of Scotland from here ,"

he'd say to me .

He bred budgies in the loft ,

on top of the back yard wall .

In the times when he was off work,

he had time for us all .

My Da tried to learn to speak Japanese

before he died .

No matter where I go in life ,

he's always by my side .
