Today would've been my Dad's birthday
so throughout the day my thoughts return
of all the yesterdays of growing up
and what I would eventually learn
I realize just how Karma works
and has truly played its part
and all the pains from long ago
would be imbedded in my heart.
I remember wanting my own room
so I moved upstairs one day
Across from me was 'Dad's Dog House'
where his treasures were tucked away
He had a door on it half made of glass
with two nude decals of Marilyn Monroe
anyone visiting me would always comment
I got teased relentlessly by some I know
Having had a bad temper tantrum
I smashed that glass one day
Now those embarrassing nudies
have finally gone away!
Afterward and some time later
I continued this destructive spree
Until finally coming to the conclusion
It was pent up anger inside of me
Years later when I was married
I sadly felt those feelings of loss
When my husband had fits of rage
breaking my things to show whose boss
Now gone are days of destruction
A peaceful life I finally live
Wishing dad was here to realize
how we all one day must forgive.
Happy Birthday, dear ol' dad.....♥
I miss you more than you will know
I gradually learn these lessons
and will carry them wherever I go.
