A Conversation With My Father

I had a conversation with my father, this morning upon my walk I’ve been feeling down a little lately and I really needed to have a talk He always knows just what to say when I need to motivate Thanks for the talk today, Dad, you were really great Yes, I know my father has passed on; it’s going on four years I still remember saying our goodbyes; I still, nightly, shed a tear But, that doesn’t stop him from helping me and offering his advice I use my morning walks of solitude as our channeling device I hear his many words of wisdom echoing in my head When I feel like just giving up he encourages me to carry on instead I remember his jokes and platitudes he always serves up with a smile When I feel my father walk with me, I walk the extra mile I had a conversation with my father, this morning upon my walk Thank you, Dad, for being there, I really needed our little talk I’ll talk with you again tomorrow and every day I walk thereafter You still pump hope into my heart and fill my soul with laughter

Your poem clearly describes the great relationship between you and your father. A blessing to last far beyond the grave. A great write.

this is so sweet, Joe. You must have also been a very good son to have thought this way of your dad.
