An ode to my father

If I never shed a tear for you
It’s because you never left
If I never saved a prayer for you
It’s because I haven’t said farewell yet

You never said goodbye
you slept through the night
your tired eyes looked well rested
your face content with a job well done
embracing the quiet sleep that evaded you for so long

where rivers flow;
where the sun never sets
and the moon never rests
I know you rest well
in the bossom of eternal grace

No matter,
your legacy lives on
your faith saved for posterity
thank you, my dear father
Thank you, for being you.

Paapaa, I miss you
