Memories of Fathers’ Day

June 27, 2012

I thought today was Fathers' Day

I went to church expecting sons

Found that I'm a week ahead

Called my boys to stay in bed

Well the thoughts of dads were in my head

I might as well put them to page

So this is what seems to come to light

About my feelings of being dad or "pops"

I remember in youth, my dad

Would take us once a year to church

For a breakfast just for Fathers' Day

Put on by the women of our church for dads

Now with so many people gone

There's no one to put it on, or to attend

Now they have maybe an extra treat

At fellowship gathered after church

My dad has passed 3 years last May

He's not around to see his grandson grown

Hope he's pleased at what I've done

By passing on the things he's shown

So to end this not of pen to page

About some view of Fathers' Day past

And maybe in another week

I'll get to enjoy the day at last
