Proud men i know (two short poems for father's day)

22 years ago/55 years too soon
your smile could light this dark room
people speak fondly of you, I think they're all stuck in the past
but your name is legendary around here, to say you didn't last
for the love you only knew was one of a clenched fist
but you were my father, and you are still missed

dadfather's daylost dadlove and time passing

world's apart

I feel the pain of your broken heart physically gone but our spirits don't part

although you hurt and and pine for me

close your eyes and there i will be

With the biggest smile on my face

as I'm free and happy in this amazing place looking out at a perfect view

standing in front of me is you

I'm very much alive more than ever

no worldly burdens..light as a feather

I'm helpi...

Favourite Shoes

My dad's favourite shoes

He saved them for best

He wore them just once

As we laid him to rest

 

 

 

 

Dedicated to the loving memory of Jack Evans; love you dad x

The Dresser

From the front at least

A beautiful victorian dresser

From behind

The ugly truth

Assembled from wooden orange crates

The company name stamped

Telling of a former

More humble existence

 

Two little drawers

One at each side

Gunmetal latch handles

Age worn

From opening and closing

Hold family secrets

Make up

Lipstick stumps

 

Snaps from Blackpool ...

little Big man

Five foot two, eyes of blue

Goes a certain song

Both were true but not nearly enough 

To describe this true and happy man

With a big beaming smile he'd enter your life

Open arms and so open hearted

Energy enough for all of us, for each and every day

To carry us all along the way

Never told always showed

The best and winning way

He led by example on how to be

A true...

DAD

entry picture

There was a man I knew,

not too close, not too far,

as a child he was there

to tend to my scars.

 

A man with a past,

of that I had no doubt,

a man, when provoked,

who knew how to shout.

 

A happy man

with a smile for all,

he'd always be there to

pick me up when I'd fall.

 

And though never far away,

we were never very close,

a sign of those times

Midnight Manoeuvres

Midnight Manoeuvres
 
It's the middle on the night
And as I gently sleep
A person is moving
They silently creep
 
With feather light footsteps
In through the door
The carpet muffling 
Footsteps on the floor
 
They reach a standstill
By the side of the bed
A shadowy figure 
That moment of dread
 
Open one eye slowly
To take a quick peek
Who c...

Dad and My Car

I sometimes find my Dad sitting next to me in my car

Not exactly him but some likeness, a vision from afar.

I can’t exactly see him clear

But either way it’s nice to have him near.

 

I sometimes find myself talking to my Dad,

Sitting next to me, in my car

It’s good to talk after all these years and I suppose he’s not really there

But it feels so good, so I don’t really care...

As a child

I thought

the sun rose

and sat because

of my Dad.

 

As a teenager

I thought my

Dad was one

of the bumbest

people on earth.

 

Now that I

am over the

age of Fifty

I think the

older I get

the smarter

my Dad was.

 

The Circle

of life.

REGRETS

REGRETS
 
I never got the chance 
To be, for you, the best
I never had the strength 
To hold you to my chest
 
I never had the time 
To be a fathers son.
I never had a hope 
Of undoing things I've done.
 
I never got to tell you
How I missed you when not there.
I never had the strength to speak 
As you were lying there.
 
I nev...

Poem for my Dad

Poem For My Dad

 

 

In the deepest darkest recess of the mind

The saddest memory is there to find

 

There’s nothing more to say except I miss you Dad,

We had our time together, good and bad

And many differences, we had

 

After all, you were a man who got an apple and an orange for Christmas

And I was a lad who began the biggest record collection in th...
