A poem for my dad Les Jeffries. 1952 – 1994.

Happy Fathers Day.

When I was a child you would hold me,
you would show me you were there,
you always cherished, loved and held me,
you showed me that you cared.

Growing up with you,
kept my dreams alive,
your smiling face,
your fun and laughter,
we never thought would die.

Then one day you had to leave,
your love had to go away,
all I had left was a broken heart,
and tears I thought would never fade.

Day by day,
year by year,
my tears start to fade,
but memories I have of you will stay forever,
cherished in my heart.
