Elegy To A Dad To a wonderful dad , who suddenly passed away Over the years, you were with us , you were very kingly Truly you see to it , if the members of the kingdom were well -provided Handsome,helpful and humorous were the words in the neighborhood is what I've heard. Enthusiasm was seen on his face towards his work Providing us in all our needs was all his desire Inculcating us good values to the rest of our lives was all he aspire Lullabies were sang by him as we requested it before we before we sleep Leading us to be good citizens , he took us to church to worship Adorable man for his stunning prowess when it comes to fellowship Regal were his ways of rearing his children, for being with him was all fun Outstanding father for a job well -done Fantastic pillar as he sent us to a a prestigious school inspite of a blue collar job Traumatic experience for his children , when he suddenly left He was taken by death, who was a silent thief Encouraging us to pursue our journey with the education as his gift, Family members were able to survive in all the struggles and strife. After nineteen years of his death I still consider him alive Memories of him as the best father will not fade In my heart and in my mind , you stayed Loving father , I want to thank you for all the great deed You are an ultimate Dad , and I am so glad and proud. FOOTNOTE: THE FIRST LETTER OF EACH LINE REPRESENTS THESE WORDS------"TO THE PILLAR OF THE FAMILY"----this was and shall always be MY DAD. I MISS YOU SO MUCH DAD !
