A score of years plus five have passed
since you last sat with me for tea,
contented in our company.
Dear Dad, I love you always will,
your easy going, carefree ways,
our frequent meetings, happy days.
When I reflect on all we shared,
gift wrapped those priceless memories,
the hours that you gave to me.
How fine a legacy you left,
unique that no one else can own,
can not be sold and can't be shown.
You live within my brightest smile,
you live within my beating heart
and every part of me that sparks
says thank you Dad, how glad am I?
How glad that I will always be,
eternally your daughter.
