My Dad

My Dad

I choke with emotion
When this pen I do write
For I know soon Dad
Of your earthly plight.

Your eyes are now dim
Your memory not so sharp
I remember all the ways
Your life has been in part
A molding of my character
And my love so today
I fondly do recall
Your influence in every way.

The little girl I was
On the toilet lid Id stand
And you would teach me
How your neck tie to knot,
And then slap aftershave
On your shaven face
The glee of excitement
As a little tot.

Older I would walk with you
Reaching up hand in mine
Youd pull me up to you
My arms your neck to find.

You were such a maverick
A power house you were
A father, husband, worker
And immigrant called Sir,
You were a farmer
A carpenter too
A soldier, officer, politician,
Businessman to name a few.

It seemed you were never home
You were busy earning so
To support your loving family
In the years we all did grow.
Each of us you married off
Helped in every part
To become a man, a woman
After your very heart.

Mom would beam with pride
In all the years through
The ups and downs together
She clung and stuck with you.
And now that you are older
And I care for you so
It touches my heart the memories
And your life does go.

From the earth we came
And return we all must
Losing you my loving Dad
The Lord does ease I trust.
