Day 7: Happy Birthday Dad



A single ray of sunlight
shines down from the clouds
I know it's you there
Just checking in with me


I'm missing you today
on your birthday

I wish I could climb a rainbow
and knock upon your door
I'd like to see your smiling face
and sit with you once more

I'm missing you today
on your birthday

If I could dial your number
just to talk for a while
what things would I choose to say
and how would I decide

I'm missing you today
on your birthday

I'm missing you today
just like every day

  1. Of course your poem makes me miss my Dad as well! So it did its job.
    My favorite verse is imagining being on the phone and deciding which things to say. How would I catch my Dad up on our lives? I will probably ponder this for awhile, and happily. Thank you for a nice poem-post.

  3. Your poem is very precious! I also noticed the light peeking through the horizon this morning. Should have known it was an angel from heaven sending down a hello! Happy Birthday to your dad a heavenly angel!

  5. I love the idea of writing a poem to your Dad. Did you "read" it to him? Did he know you wrote poetry?
