Poem: R.I.P Dad

Dad Not All Superheroes Wear Capes!: Funny Dad Quotes Journal For ...


My Father’s name was Brian,

he was always very dapper,

I remember him wiping down his clothes


the smell of his hair products

in his slicked back grey hair,

the black leather shoes he regularly wore

and just all round always looking a picture.


My Father had Dublin humour

which of course means he was hilarious,

he could crack a joke at the drop of a hat,

always quick with a one-liner,

his wittiness knew no end.


My Dad always said no one is above

or below you,

my Dad always believed I could do

anything I set my mind,

I never felt less

due to my working-class roots,

he made sure of that.


My Father was kind,

his heart was huge,

he fought for his rights,

he was gentle,

people found him a gentleman

and he was.


I love you Dad,

I miss you,

I think about you all the time,

you will always be with me,

Happy Father’s Day,

lots of love and kisses.
