TRIBUTE TO MY FATHER


It was a day of the sun
The day of God
When my father went to sleep
A day of the sun
The day of God
He went to sleep Close to his mother's bosom again
He went to sleep
My father
Like a new born babe
He slept in comforting peace
In the hospital bed Like in a cradle he slpet in peace
Where his first son
Now stool over him
like a father
And my father laid across
Lik a son. Dedicated to my dad who past on on the
24 of January 1919.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
