My Dad
(Father Dad Poems)

When I was just a tiny kid
Do you remember when ..
The time you kissed my bruises
Or cleaned by soiled chin?

You scrambled for the balls I hit
Short-winded more than not ..
Yet, every time we’d play a game
You praised the “outs” I caught.

It seems like only yesterday
You wiped away my tears ..
And late at night I called your name
To chase away my fears.

Though time has changed your handsome grip
Your hair is snowy white ..
You gait’s a little slower now
Thick glasses help your sight.

Oh, do I thirst for years gone by
To be that growing lad ..
Re-living all of the memories
Of growing with my dad.
