In Memory Of My Dad

If I could write a story,

It would be the greatest ever told

Of a kind and loving father

Who had a heart of gold.

I could write a million pages

But still be unable to say just how

Much I love and miss him

Every single day.

I will remember all he taught me.

I’m hurt but won’t be sad,

Because he’ll send me down the answers,

And he’ll always be my dad.
