Oh Father

Oh Father,
Once bursting of life,
Has been taken abruptly,
Replaced me with strife.
Your laughter and friendship
suddenly stripped away,
A child again, I shall sit upon your lap.
I await that glorious day.
Oh Father,
Your pure body soon to diminish,
Your spirit radiates inside mine,
This love of ours has no finish.
A fresh beginning so divine.
