My Father....

by Dreamofolwin   Jun 17, 2012


Strength and supporting hands dad, you've always given me.
Guidance when it was needed, and love firm as a rooted tree.
You let me be myself, finding out my owm mistakes...
that's what growing up was all about, taking my own stakes.

But your words of wisdom where there, embedded in my mind.
As well as your care and patience, that was strong and kind....
I'm grown up now, but still look to you as my protector and friend.
And as long as life gives us breath, I will, until the end.

    Truly a lovely and heartfelt poem. Bought a tear to my eye especially the last line..

    'And as long as life gives us breath, I will, until the end.'

    This line hit me like a 'ton of bricks.'
    A truly great piece of writing.
