Father come back and kiss me gently and put your arms around me.
All my Poems
In this poem about my father's fear of discussing death, I begin to make a case for Euthanasia - something I've believed in for more than a decade.
For my parents - "So fragile our dreams when we know not the way... Today, I am cleansed and freed of a self neglecting past"
Written as I painfully miss my dad and want to have him back so we can both "serve humanity" as we individually strove to do so.
Written on All Soul's Day after a visit to my father's grave. For grieving families everywhere.
let your dreams hold sway,be prepared to go the distancefor then will life have deep resonance.
There's things I never learnt to say or see but papa, I am grateful for all that I got from Thee.
One day I hope to understandwhat it is to be a father and also to take the loss of your near and dear ones and not be devastated.
It wasn't till the last four yearsthat i spoke of being broken upon the rocks of life,was when i sensed your strength.
"I'm glad you won me over as you stood the test of years... I now let go of my fears and grow up, enriched by my tears"
Bless me father for i purport to build a field of dreams,i wish to srve with arms wide,so grant me your grace.
Heaven knows I try to make you proud of me.
After losing my father
Small bit of prose written on my father's last birthday
To find healing in this world
Wondering if I can ever be as cool as my father. "As time and again I realise he is the best of us - What can I say except papa I'll do my best in life".
A somber reflection on death. "Precious is each minute and content he - Who fills each one with sixty seconds - Worth of distance run".
