To My Dad

As a child I loved you
Feared you
Revered you
Felt safe hand in hand
When we walked in a crowd

Through teenage years I loved you
Though I fought you
And hurt you
Feel regret in my heart
And wish we’d never rowed

As I grew up I loved you
Could confide in you
Relied on you
Felt glad of your wisdom
Upon me bestowed

Through all my life I’ll love you
I’ll miss you
I thank you
For all that you’ve given me
In our short time allowed
