For My Father…

I continue with exploring poetry, here’s my little Father’s Day Poem for my Dad.

Roland, that is his name
Only he a father i will ever need
Laughter flows as does his corny jokes
Accepting everyone as they are does he
Never gives up, always tries he does
Delicious pork chops his signature dish

My dearest Papa, Thank You
You are the best Daddy a girl can ever want

Fun-loving and generous with his time and talents
Always seeking the silver lining in life
Tender-hearted yet strong he is always
Hardworking, giving his best each and every time
Encouragements he gives always lifts me up
Repay him for his devoted love ever try I will

Thank you Daddy for everything you have done for us.
Happy Father’s Day!

For My Mother…

i recently attended a webinar on poetry so i thought i try my hand at writing a poem for my mum on mother’s day.

Daisy, her name that is
Always there for us is she
In ups and downs, her constant love, on it we depend
Steadfast, always ready to catch us she is
You ask who is this she

My dearest mother she is
You see the very best is she

Makes wonderfully yummy food she does
Organised, at home and at work, always is she
Thankful for the many things i learned from her i am
Humble; always putting others before self is she
Ever ready to keep trying; tenacious she is
Repay her for years of dedicated care, forever try i will

Words are not enough.
