Dad is just out for a while.....

I so want to have a natter with dad
To tell him all the funny things I do
About my beautiful son that I adore
The verses that pour out from my soul
How the rain fell like timber last night
Our cat who loves a cuddle in our bed
My curious ways of seeing the world
How life here has its ups and downs
A chat about what the future may bring
Today the calendar says ‘Fathers Day’
Many bring breakfast in trays to beds
Hugs and kisses and squeals of delight
His daddy arms I’ll not feel his embrace
My heart has the memory of him in full
Tears open pages of my dad heart book
And upon my daddy’s knee I will sit
My arms wrapped around days gone by
Souls together in a place without time
Though dad’s eyes be closed forever
He still has life in my son’s blue eyes
Memories will have their eternal dance
Dad and I sit together now and smile
He really didn’t go just out for a while
