At no matter what age a father passes,
It is far too young for the adoring son;
No matter the accomplishments a father amasses,
The job of being ‘Daddy’ is never done.
Even when a man becomes a father himself,
His father’s advice he will always seek;
Even with independence and confidence felt,
The day his father passes will be dark and bleak.
At no matter what age a father moves on,
It will always put tears in a loving son’s eyes;
The touchstone once counted upon is now gone
The day that his father dies.
