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 .

You give us such a gift with the images in your words, it reminds me a bit of Auden in its powerful simplicity and perfectly picked words as if from a basket of descriptions.
