    Though you're not his father as far as bloodlines go,
    You are the only daddy this child will ever know.

    Creating a bond that forever will last.

  15. 53. He's My Dad

    Muddy boots and overalls, he stood about six two
    He was a country bumpkin; hard work was what he knew
    A carpenter, a roofer, a jack of many trades
    Countless hours of hard labor with not much time to play

  21. 59. For My Dad

    • By Helen K. Grandison-Whyte
    • Published by Family Friend Poems January 1, 2024 with permission of the Author.

    I sit here and wait. I wait for your chest to rise; I wait for you to open your eyes. I lay in bed and wait to hear... to hear that door open and Mum calmly come out, because that means you didn't bow out. I watch you smile, to hell with the pain, your spirit lifts when you see us all together again.

    I know you're in pain, it's a struggle every day, I know the goodbye that hangs in the air, but my heart isn't ready for the break that's waiting there. I try not to get stuck on what's to come, I don't want to grieve early, let's just have some rum. Let's laugh at the past, and live in the now, create new memories while time allows.
