ELLIE,"THE POET IN ME"
MY FATHER; SPECIAL FOR FATHER'S DAY
Father's day is June 19, and all
the kids out there must be happy,
they have one person, who loves
My Father, whom I have the
fondest memories, because
he gave me love without asking
for anything, I want to tell
When, I want to remember the
things He did for me, all
I have to do, is bring back
into my mind pictures of him,
of happyness and full of fun.
The times he would get up
early in the morning to make
me, my favorite breakfast;
so, I did not leave home for
school without it.
The times, I would forget, to
be home on time for lunch, and
my mother would reprimand me and
him taking my side.
The times He would carry me on
his shoulders coming back home
from some event, because I
would be too tired to walk;
Those days not all people
And specially the last time.
When, we went downtown to buy me
shoes and at the bus stop, he must
have forgotten something, told me
to wait for him, and when he did
not come to what seem to me hours,
I decided to come home walking.
Surely, I was little and did not
know the way, but I followed the
landmarks I had learned traveling
with the bus, and by following
them, I reached home, after a
couple of hours of walking.
My mother was frantic, but He
lovingly, started laughing and
proudly gave me a hug, instead
of a spanking for not waiting
for him. That is my best memory
of Him, that I kept in my memory
bank and retrieve it, when I want
to remember Him.
That was MY FATHER, full of life
I hope you put away in your
memory bank the fondest memories
you have about your own father.
