Dad's Touch - Poem by Ima Ryma

Growing up, all I had was Dad.
He was my best friend, come what may.
At times, I cried when I was sad.
Dad gently wiped my tears away.
There weren't that many times for tears.
We lived and loved and laughed a lot.
Dad praised my hopes and soothed my fears.
Learn from feeling - was what Dad taught.
I wished that we'd go on and on.
But, that wish withered when Dad died.
I waited till they all had gone.
Kneeling next to his grave, I cried.

I missed Dad more than words could say.
Dad gently wiped my tears away.

    A touchy poem. A good write. Rationally, now we have to learn to learn from thinking than feeling if you agree. OK (Report) Reply

    the poem takes me to the days when my father was with me; the phrase ' come what may ' was frequently used by my dad to assert and do things without worrying about results/consequences; thanks for bringing my dad before my mind's eyes; God Bless You (Report) Reply
