Compassion Poem

Not Everything Is Forgotten

This is dedicated to my dad who is no longer with me. Some words needed to be said as I made my journey into adulthood. Not everything is forgotten, but some have passed.

Many years have now gone by
with the anger I had inside.
I often wondered what went wrong,
you so angry for so long,

Father's Day will soon arrive.
Another year I hope you'll try
to make amends for all your lies.
Many questions we wonder why

your sins were always criticized.
Now the years have passed you by.
Patient understanding as we tie
the family together to realize

how important is compromise
when your children see you cry.
Father's Day has now arrived.
Another year I now know why.
