I NEVER REALLY KNEW HIM

Introvert to introvert

++++++++++++++++++++++++

Mom said we were very much alike –

Me and my old dad.

Neither of us perfect,

But he was the one I had.

++

Sometimes he’d sleep a bit too long,

Sometimes I’d read too much;

We were both quiet and shy in our own ways

And not quick to hug or touch.

++

But dad had a smile that lit the room

And his eyes would shine like stars.

He had an imagination

That could take you beyond Mars.

++

We would differ in opinions,

And our words were sometimes loud;

But he was always there when my need arouse

To chase away dark clouds.

++

My world revolved around him;

Now, he’s gone and it’s so sad,

That I never really knew him –

The man I once called Dad.

    This poem is so emotional. When I read it, I think about my dad. He was a great dad to me.
