Goodbye Colin


It was just like yesterday
I grew up in your eyes
With your Scottish accent
I took pride in announcing
you as Daddy!

Your lovely gentle eyes
Your kind sweet words
Your tough working hands
Your ever reassuring voice
Your fatherly care,
made me feel like a princess!

I grew up calling you Daddy
Mummy called you Honey
My kids called you Papa
Friends called you Charming
Neighbors called you a true friend

One day, a deadly tragedy struck
Mum was taken away from us
We mourned and grieved
You never recovered from it!
You put up a smile always,
But your spirit was long gone

Today, you joined your sweetheart
The suffering was too much to bear
I miss you terribly my Scottish Daddy,
but I know your love has conquered!
You will be with your sweetheart,
Starting again where you left off!

OH MY OH MY.... A most splendid mature tribue and eulogy.

So sad, yet your love makes this divine.... I am in awe of such faith...

yet not a faith unfounded, as it is fact.....
