Daddy Bark - Poem by Talia Anziliero

Like the strongest oak,
You refuse to bow down
No matter how tempest the storm
You stand strong, tall and proud

Your bark is flaking now
The memories are you leaves
And like the leaves, when one falls
It story is told as you reminisce out loud

But do not worry you still are quite young
With the prime of your life not quite yet begun

Friends surround you
Like many a fallen fruit
Yet not as bold as you were when you were just a shoot

Defined, strong and justified though you are
A sapling inside we see
For no matter how old you grow

A sapling and a juvenile is what you’ll remain to me

    One of the greatest sentimental poems I have read. I gave it a 10.

    No matter how tempest the storm
    You stand strong, tall and proud... very optimistic, good tribute to a Dad! A 10.
