PROUD TO CALL HIM DAD

 dadxxxxxxxxx

I planted my first acorn when I was only three

One of the first lessons my father taught me

He was an expert in how seeds germinate and grow

He thought this was something everyone should know

I waited patiently for the first leaves to appear

Then he showed me how to tend it with such loving care

I watched that sapling grow into a mighty tree

When I see it now it brings him into my memory

It reminds me of the love that he showed to me

Similar to the care I showed to that saplng tree

By reason of that love the tree reached maturity

And it’s survival to this day reminds me of his memory

It’s many years now since he passed away

But he still enters my mind nearly everyday

His passing was something that made me sad

But he was the one I was proud to call my dad

Poems about Grandfathers

rocking

One does not have to do anything to become a grandfather. It simply happens when your child has a child. It is up to you to decide how involved you will be in your grandchild’s life. There is an inherent biological relationship but the emotional bonding between grandfather and grandchild comes only with effort. It happens when the grandchild sees that you are open to forming a relationship. It happens when you get off your easy chair and make the effort to see what matters to your grandchild.

My Granddad

You are my Granddad

You are not just a fad

Like an x box, tablet or phone

I know you tend to groan

But you are my Granddad

Who makes me happy and sad

You can be very annoying

But when you’re in the bath

And I hear you sing

I am glad you are around

When I hear that sound

You are like a Victorian pear

You have always been there

Very mellow and soft to touch

Granddad I love you so much

My Dads Dad

My Granddad came to stay

My Dad bought him a card

I’m only four

And not sure

What this card was for

And this puzzled me

Was Granddad doing his family tour

I’m not sure

I’m only four

Was it Granddads birthday

So I asked my dad

To explain to me

What this card was for

He said it’s Fathers day

And your Granddad is daddy to me
