Dad


Dad

I know it was hard on you,
Having a child with a disability,
You always had to care for me a child with a disability,
You should of not had to do that,
At times I think I am the one to blame,
For you and mom not getting a long,
But then I get told it was like this before I was born,
Why just why would you stay with her?
You always have said you stay with her for us kids,
But what you don’t get is all the hell,
And heart ache you’ve put me threw,
The others don’t see it as I do,
You don’t see them different as you see me,
So I think to myself,
You must just like seeing me in all this pain,
No matter what words you have said,
Nothing can ever take my pain away,

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
