Dad’s Poem Our Dad was our rock His sudden passing has left us in shock We believe our dear Mother decided his time with us was enough To bestow upon us all of his everlasting love Together again, they will forever remain in Heaven’s shine They will build us a nest as they did on this side and as divine Service before self is not something we dreamed Making others happy was a quality he gleamed Family first, work hard, help build community Make yourself bigger with each opportunity And express yourself through your creativity Enjoy the fruits of your labour Be in awe of Mother Nature And treat everyone as they were your neighbour You can let go now Daddy We will take it from here It won’t always be easy We are so proud to be your lass and laddies And will live in your glowing memory Love you Dad, Sterling
