There Is No Other Dad Like You
I loved it when you showed me how to hammer in a nail.
The many times at the lake you carried my shovel and my pail.
When you taught me how to hold a hockey stick.
Shooting the puck is what I learned quick.
The times you hid behind the tree.
Making sure my sisters and I were as safe as we could be.
I am proud of you for teaching me right from wrong.
To never back away ,feel courage and be strong.
But the day you left and I could not see you again.
I hugged you tight, now I feel shame.
The battle of COVID was not fair to you.
The lack of oxygen made your skin turn a pale blue.
You fought hard to be here for each and everyone.
It was your time, you were ill and you really missed sweet mom.
