Farewell To My Dad.

Poem By Colleen Wright

Farewell to my Dad.

A couple of things that you should know,
if and when, to the next life you must go.
It is because of our selfishness you know,
that we will find it very hard to let you go.

'Oh my papa to me you were so wonderful'
that very old song still sounds so beautiful.
'Oh my papa, to me you were so true'
It does tell my story, from me to you.

It will be good for you to have true peace
and to know that the pain will soon cease.
We will look forward to seeing you again,
in a life of true peace, happiness to no end.

The Reflection. [2]

I sense the gum leaves from fresh country air
I sense your nearness when you're not there.
I sense the favourite foods you like to eat
I sense the paddocks of harvested wheat.

Too many long scorching summers of unending heat
have passed and burned away hopes - no rain – defeat.

Your voice on the the telephone
