For the Honored Man

Updated on June 19, 2010

A breezy cowboy hat~

A light dungaree shirt~

A new blue watering can~

And a navy blue patterned kerchief~

“This is true”~

Is what I gave to my father~

 On this day~

 For the honored man.

The best man I know~

 In all the vast lands.

 

He now sits in his chair~

Contemplating life~

His eye lids shut~

As he says~

 “He is only resting his eyes”.

 

He saunters to the garden at times~

Checking on the plants~

Sometimes using that old leaky~

 Watering can.

 

Meal time is important to him~

Super grand~

The news on TV~

Always on hand.

 

A western necktie he does~

 Fancy to wear~

As his shirts are ironed by~

 My mother with care.

 

I remember when young~

 His corn pipe in mouth~

When he pondered life~

 Out in the yard~

 Around our humbled house.

 

I reminisce the yarns~

 He told me “I thought true”~

The father of three~

A better man I never knew.
