Today’s a day that I recall
When I was young and oh so small
My father took me by the hand
He hoped that I would understand.
We talked of God and varied things
And whether angels do have wings
He had so very much to say
We walked and chatted all the way.
In those remaining years we knew
My dad and I much closer grew
He tutored me, I was his clone
That’s how I learned to stand alone.
I thank him now for lessons taught
And all the strength his wisdom bought
I miss him still and always will
The gap he left too huge to fill !
