DADDY… a poem

Daddy was the strong one

I had never seen him cry

When grandpa passed away

He came and wiped my eye

And grandma wasn’t far behind

She loved my grandpa so

He wiped away more tears that day

From me – but not his own

That was so very long ago

Now, with children by my side

My mamma passed away today

And daddy broke down and cried

    1. Thank you, Winnie! I’ve missed you out here! I am about to take a couple of weeks away from WP and just be off of work and away from everything except family. Need to adjust my brain and get back on track. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours! Kev

  1. Oh, I liked this one. I’ve never seen my dad cry and, given our estrangement, probably never will. What I loved about this poem and what struck me was that your mom was the love of his life, and that romantic notion gets my heartstrings a going.
