MY FATHER

There is a man I've always known

As mountains stand and rivers flow

Moments made as memories sown

Since time began as time perceived

 

There is a child I've always been

In my father's eyes I see

Him looking back much like me

Since life began as life conceived

 

There is a thought I've always felt

From highest mind to deepest depth

A happiness passed on to me

Since love began as love believed

 

And now his eyes see realms unknown

His moments folded into one

And though his heart has left him cold

He's still a man I'll always know

 

For my Dad, Derek Wright - Sep. 5 1930 - Aug 23rd 2011
