Ode to Dad


I wish we talked more

Maybe about grandpa’s antics

Or about grandma’s guffaws

I wish we talked more

 

I wish I rang more

To maybe talk about politics

And count MCA’s flaw galore

I wish I rang more

 

I wish I visited more

Especially when you were sick

Or when you were sore

I wish I visited more

 

I could wish no more

To talk, visit, ring or anything at all

 

But I can and will remember

Because you are – forever – my father

Ten years now, since you departed

But now and always you’ll be revered

 

You were a special dad…
