Papa

P atrick is a special kind of man
A lways there to help folk if he can
P erfect is the way his children see him
A nd now they have to watch his lights go dim.

    nicely done Peter, I don't like watching the soul leave the body, the body always looks so pathetic at those times. But you have memories ;} and then again you will meet up with them one day ;} Thank you so for liking my DAWN poem ;}
