If You Were Here Today

If you were here today,

I would tell you about your

three grandsons (who remind

me of you in different ways).

 

If you were here today,

I would show you how I can

cook more than tv dinners, now.

 

If you were here today,

I would match wits with you

and you’d see that I am

just like you.

 

If you were here today,

I would run to you for advice

only now I would hold onto each

word spoken.

 

If you were here today,

I would know you were proud of me,

because I have finally listened to

all the things you taught me.

 

If you were here today,

I would still try to walk with your

crutches just like I used to – only

now …I would be tall enough.

 

If you were here today,

I would hold you tight and not

let go and I would shower your

face with kisses.

 

If you were here today,

I would get to hear you

call me “Termite” again.

 

If you were here today,

I would tell you Happy Birthday

and that I miss you so much.

I love you, Daddy.

 

Love,

Your Termite
