Happy Father’s Day

I know my limitations,

Your expectations.

Whilst beneath my car

sawing off old rusted bolts.

You read poetry.

A Shakespearian Sonnet.

Then you ask. ‘Dad, what is love?’

Father’s Day for me

A coffin, long years buried

Three wonderful sons

by dying so young

you selfishly stole from me

my right to your love

Owning no picture

My father’s face has faded

I have his blue eyes
