A Father Missed

A Father Missed

A Poem by susanwrite2
"

A Wonderful Father

"

You were special, not self-absorbed 

Your personality quiet, always there

You gave unintentionally

As your way of showing you care

You took us down the long lane for walks

And holding us in your lap while 

Having a little talks

You would play on the banjo

Making music to show

Your love for us, our love

You could not know

Outspoken and in the limelight

Was not part of you

You gave by smart quips

Always humorous too

You worked in engineering

Mathematics was on your mind

You were never rude but always so kind

You made what people

Didn't see but only their purchase

The end of what would be

You were greatly loved and now missed each year

Your birthday, the hugs, your smile and cheer
