I Remember Dad…..
I remember dancing with you Dad
Aren’t I light on my feet Dad?
I remember your uproarious laughter as I said it
The bear hug of a squeeze during our dance
You carried me to your room, sharing our little moment with Mom.
I remember resting on your shoulder Dad, with my arms outstretched like wings,
Buzzing all around the house we were, weren’t we?
Me laughing and you running
You zoomed me into the kitchen and swooped me down,
So I could give Mom a kiss, and she smiled.
I remember Dad and I, singing in the car loudly and with gusto,
As off key as possible, just to drive Mom nuts,
Her face was evidence of what she wanted and prayed for,
“Oh please, stop assaulting my ears!”
I remember Dad, swinging in the swing at Buddy Todd Park
And at home too, the swing kept going back and forth,
Higher and higher I swung, trying to make it to the sky,
“Higher, higher Dad!” Heaven bound was I.
Happy Father’s Day Pops, I love you and I miss you!!
