Cranky Old Man

What do you see nurses? . . .. . .What do you see?
What are you thinking .. . when you're looking at me?
A cranky old man, . . . . . .not very wise,
Uncertain of habit .. . . . . . . .. with faraway eyes?
Who dribbles his food .. . ... . . and makes no reply.
When you say in a loud voice . .'I do wish you'd try!'
Who seems not to notice . . .the things that you do.
And forever is losing . . . . . .. . . A sock or shoe?
Who, resisting or not . . . ... lets you do as you will,
With bathing and feeding . . . .The long day to fill?
Is that what you're thinking?. .Is that what you see?
Then open your eyes, nurse .you're not looking at me.
I'll tell you who I am . . . . .. As I sit here so still,
As I do at your bidding, .. . . . as I eat at your will.
I'm a small child of Ten . .with a father and mother,
Brothers and sisters .. . . .. . who love one another
A young boy of Sixteen . . . .. with wings on his feet
Dreaming that soon now . . .. . . a lover he'll meet.
A groom soon at Twenty . . . heart gives a leap.
Remembering, the vows .. .. .that I promised to keep.
At Twenty-Five, now . . . . .I have young of my own.
Who need me to guide . . . And a secure happy home.
A man of Thirty . .. . . . . My young now grown fast,
Bound to each other . . .. With ties that should last.
At Forty, my young sons .. .have grown and are gone,
But my woman is beside me . . to see I don't mourn.
At Fifty, once more, .. ...Babies play 'round my knee,
Again, we know children . . . . My loved one and me.
Dark days are upon me . . . . My wife is now dead.
I look at the future ... . . . . I shudder with dread.
For my young are all rearing .. . . young of their own.
And I think of the years . . . And the love that I've known.
I'm now an old man . . . . . . .. and nature is cruel.
It's jest to make old age . . . . . . . look like a fool.
The body, it crumbles .. .. . grace and vigour, depart.
There is now a stone . . . where I once had a heart.
But inside this old carcass . A young man still dwells,
And now and again . . . . . my battered heart swells
I remember the joys . . . . .. . I remember the pain.
And I'm loving and living . . . . . . . life over again.
I think of the years, all too few . . .. gone too fast.
And accept the stark fact . . . that nothing can last.
So open your eyes, people .. . . . .. . . open and see.
Not a cranky old man .
Look closer . . . . see .. .. . .. .... . ME!!

For your father dear poem for Father's Day

  • What is a Dad

    Dad, this is a celebration of a special day with you,
    I'm taking you to your favorite place,
    So you can stuff your face until your blue.

    You'll sit in a wooden booth with other dads,
    Reminiscing about times of old,
    The plentiful good and the God-awful bad.

    Although you've hardly shed a tear from either eye,
    I think this year with your grandchildren near,
    You'll choke up at how fast time has gone by.

    It's ok if you release what you really feel,
    You don't need to guard yourself,
    Or act like you're made out of steel.

    I know the kind of dad you are,
    Sacrificing time away from family,
    Sometimes sleeping in a car.

    You don't have tell me what you did for me,
    Doing all you could,
    When mom decided to flee.

    I'm proud of you for doing your best.
    You never complained,
    When all you did was work instead of rest.

    I am the man I am today,
    Because you gave me so much,
    When as a kid all did was play.

    You sheltered me from the perils of negative thinking,
    Infusing in me the will to dream,
    Regardless if the world around me was sinking.

    Today, this very day,
    I write this "what is a dad poem" to you,
    Pouring out what I could never say.

    Without you there is no me,
    And without me there is no you,
    Amazing how God intended that to be.

    Dad, enjoy father's day this year,
    As I know you know how,
    Love you dad, hope you hear that loud and clear.

  • Said the Father to the Son
    Life is a sentence,
    you are the pun.
    Fear's a utility,
    Use it to it's limit.
    Life is full of sliders,
    No need to waste a minute.
    Listen to me, son,
    these lessons are essential.
    Life hits hard,
    and is constantly sequential.
    If you need evidence,
    then sit back, relax,
    to underscore prevalence,
    prepare the last act.
    Look around.
    May I suggest, fear is thriving.
    While hope is ground down.
    Do you see it?
    We are just abiding.
    Simple life is simple
    But for yours it's worth fighting
    I can't quit.
    And, slowly the end's arriving.
    What happens next?
    It's a little bit exciting
    Are you stressed?
    Well, I'm the one dying.
    Live your life.
    No regrets.
    And never stop striving.

Father child bonding poem card for fathers day

Fathers are Wonderful People

Fathers are wonderful people
Too little understood,
And we do not sing their praises
As often as we should...

For, somehow, Father seems to be
The man who pays the bills,
While Mother binds up little hurts
And nurses all our ills...

And Father struggles daily
To live up to "HIS IMAGE"
As protector and provider
And "hero or the scrimmage"...

And perhaps that is the reason
We sometimes get the notion,
That Fathers are not subject
To the thing we call emotion,

But if you look inside Dad's heart,
Where no one else can see
You'll find he's sentimental
And as "soft" as he can be...

But he's so busy every day
In the grueling race of life,
He leaves the sentimental stuff
To his partner and his wife...

But Fathers are just WONDERFUL
In a million different ways,
And they merit loving compliments
And accolade of praise,

For the only reason Dad aspires
To fortune and success
Is to make the family proud of him
And to bring them happiness...

He's a guardian and a guide,
Someone that we can count on
To be always on our side.
