My Hero

 

My dad passed away unexpectedly in September, so I wrote a little poem about my hero.

 

My hero

 

Until very recently I knew a man,

he was my hero,

he was my dad.

 

Until very recently I knew a man,

he was ordered and considered,

he was thoughtful and a teacher.

 

Until very recently I knew a man,

he was anxious and at times distressed,

he experienced significant mental health challenges.

 

Until very recently I knew a man,

he looked after me,

he loved me.

 

Until very recently I knew a man,

he was my hero,

he was my dad.

 

Forever my hero lives on in my heart.

Forever my dad lives on in my heart.
