Tribute to my Dad

broken bones
skinned knees
it was you

wondering where I am
was I okay
it was you

when I fell apart
from a broken heart
it was you

tasting my tears
facing my fears
it was you

sharing my pain 
from far away
it was you

happy in love
sharing my joy
it was you

weary and tired
from illness and pain
now it is me

holding your hand
in your last days
it is me

laying you to rest
saying farewell to the best
it is me

thanks Dad
I love you
I miss you

    Tulisha, this one reminds me of my dad who died many years ago, but I still miss him so much. Nice tribute to your dad and welcome. Ernilando

    This lovely tribute to your Dad touched me deeply, TuLisha. He sounds like a great father and you were lucky to have him. My Dad died in January, so I was drawn to the subject of this poem. You brought back some wonderful memories. Thank you! Love, Carolyn
