|A TRIBUTE TO MY DAD.|
|When I look into your eyes, I see myself sometimes|
I realise we've both shared more happier times.
I see a man who has stood his ground,
through the trials and tribulations that have been around.
Over the years, the memories we've shared.
We have a family who has always been there.
And all through this time Dad, I've come to realise,
I'm sorry for the suffering, to you my Dad I've caused.
When I was a little girl, I remember these things
Dancing in my cot, singing "Mary-anne".
Building fences, even a ceiling we put up.
The times you were in a rage, over the anguish I bore you.
No matter what the memories show, there's one thing that shines clear.
Children and animals loved you so, they always flocked around.
|*Note. The Tribute to my Dad poem was penned when I learnt my father was dying from prostate cancer. It was my gift to him and it was used at his funeral. It was penned in the days where I did not have a computer and I painstakingly put the poem on special parchment in calligraphy.|
