Happy Birthday Dad!

Slice of Life Challenge hosted by Two Writing Teachers.
Remembering you today.
Your eyes and your smile.
The way you could make everything seem ok.
Teasing. Loving. Doing. Being there.
Cars, sports, racing.
Bon fires and stars.
The over-the-glasses look that was All your own.
Proud.  Saying:
"It doesn't get any better than this!"
And meaning it.
Thinking of you every Day.
Remembering you today.


  1. What a meaningful poem in honor of your dad. The colored highlights adds a special touch.

  2. "It doesn't get any better than this!" that's a line from my dad too! Thanks for sharing this poem (and your dad) with us.

  3. As Ruth said - thanks for sharing your dad with us today.

  4. "Thinking of you every day. Remembering you today." Beautiful end to a lovely tribute to your dad.
