Fathers Don'T Grow Old - Poem by Jemarie Ragudo

You’re not old, Dad
You got wrinkles
And few hairs
But you’re not old
You got dentures
And cataract
But you’re not old
You’re forgetful
And a crank
But you’re not old

Fathers don’t
Grow old, Dad
Good fathers
Don’t grow old
In the hearts
Of the children
They Loved

    This brought tears to my eyes because.... yes we do grow old. But it's amazing to think we remain young in the hearts of our kids. (Report) Reply
