Happy Birthday Dad

Happy Birthday Dad
today is your birthday
you were born in ’25
your presence is still felt with us
just as when you were alive
the joy of happy memories
those lessons learnt repeat
with your patience and encouragement
any challenge we could meet
an athlete, a doctor
a loving husband, father, son
creative, a visionary
perfectionist in each project you have done
life-time friendships were nurtured
a sense of humour shining thru
happiest in your garden
or in new places traveled to
we love you dear father
and honour who you be
feeling your presence
and happy you are free
