Here’s my latest entry into the dVerse Open Link – why not take a look at everyone else’s wonderful responses?
This is about me and my dad, having a conversation with him in my head.
– In Conversation –
Return to me and make me smile
In my mind’s eye, stay a while
Ring your laughter in my ear
Embrace me, say there’s naught to fear
Take me back to childhood days
When all your words were full of praise
Your pride in me was plain to see
The centre of your world was me
The dead can do no wrong, they say
Rest in peace, we hope and pray
Strange it is that now you’ve left
You fill my thoughts, my heart’s bereft
Yet strangely full, I’m not alone
I carry you in every bone
My mortal fibre is borne from you
Wherever you are, think of me too.
