Seeing The Funny Side - For Dad RIP

My Dad was a funny guy He had a Labrador as a guide You see my dad was blind Yet always saw the funny side Like drinking cups of hot water Instead of cups of tea Because the teabag missed the cup Yes, he did that a time or three We went through many a kettle Mum would get quite hectic He’d put it on the stove to boil Not seeing it was electric I never heard him grumble Never heard a single complaint Even when he painted the shed with water Believing it was paint These things he did are true But he never lost his pride My dad was blind, could not see Yet could see the funny side
Dad passed at the ridiculously young age of 56, it is impossible to believe in less than seven years from now, I will be older than him. Everything in the poem above is true, they really did happen, but he could always laugh at himself, which I always saw as a tremendous strength, just one of the many valuable life lessons he taught me.
