H-e was there when you were launched, his bright-eyed little child,

A-nd the day you cooed “da-da” he went absolutely wild!

P-itter-patter of your tiny feet music to his ears

P-laying games, building trains, piggybacking through the years.

Y-oung and carefree you were then, he a steadfast helping hand,


F-irm and wise, always kind when he rose to take a stand

A-t life’s crossroads, he’d appear to guide you on your way

T-ies were strained, words were said, when you briefly went astray

H-is enduring love sustains you, but his light is growing dim

E-re he takes a worse turn, won’t you tell him you love him?

R-arely did you take the time to say what’s in your heart

S-top this painful guessing game, it’s never late to start.


D-ad, I love you and I thank you, before you gently go

A-ll the lessons you have taught me, from my soul will sweetly flow

Y-ou see, my own father I have lost. That’s why I know.



In POP's memory

Quote of the Day

Here's a health to the company, and one to my lass.Let's drink and be merry all out of one glass.Let's drink and be merry all grief to refrain,For we may and might never all meet here again.~(trad.)
