TO MY FATHER, My COMPASS, My GUARDIAN
Father from whom my life did sprout
very proudly from the rooftops I shout
what an exceptional father "thou art"
our Heavenly Father did set you apart
to fulfill a strenuous multitask
raising 9 kids, what more could you ask.
you forgot about yourself completely
you lived your life very discreetly
it was all about us, your kids
never about you, Heaven forbids
father, thru all the years of hard labor
you never acted as a ferocious dictator
you loved us with all your might
having you as our dad was a delight
everybody could always count on you
you never said no even if you wanted to
father, the one we always relied on
except now that you are gone
to join our mammie your beloved wife
forever together now in the afterlife
telling you "I love you" the pain does soften
I wish I would have told you this more often.
Rita Biesemans, Father's Day 2013
dedicated to my father who died on the same date as my mother November 1st but 12 years later.
