Best Poem of Alistair Stewart

My Father

Memories of my Dad

His hands were the same
The marks and the lines
Tanned and hardened with years

I held them gently
As he once had held mine
He had no tears

‘O Danny Boy’ filled the room
and memories came back
But only to me
I could see in his eyes
His heart was empty
His fears had all gone
But so too had his life

I remembered the times
We sat by the fire
Seeing shapes in the embers

“If I go now you know
I will never be back”
I said ‘yes’ without raising my eyes

I secretly prayed
I could take it away
