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
Stepdad, sportsman, golfing fanatic
when we drink together our thoughts link telepathic
bad dancer, but with a heart of gold
you don't say love a lot but you know it's not be sold
retired recently, may your days be forever now full of peace
look after me mam when days slow down and time starts to cease.

Both poignant, personal and beautifully written.
