I stand with my hand atop your shoulder
These people do wish you oh so well, have felt your pain many a moment in time
Your father’s eyes were terrifically kind, blindingly so some might say – ferociously able when least suspected
To turn adversity to positive endeavour out of seemingly nothing
He entertained many a momentous day, didn’t he just
Now prepare yourself to place down upon his chest this silkened rose, to propose to remember him for all of a lifetime
Kind, kind eyes indeed – where your creativity goes to smile, reminisce and to simply breathe
