for dad on his birthday Oct 1st

image is from internet – but this is how I remember him best as I could play with ceiling fans and even touch the ceiling as he was six feet two

Today is your birthday
but I remember
and miss you
everyday
mouth smiles
remembering
eyes mist over
sorely missing you
you taught me
so much – shy
gentle giant that
you were
you filled me
with love for figures
plus english language
and fitness
I know you still
lookout for me in myriad
ways from wherever
you now reside
some ties
defy life, death
everafter, how well
I now realize
armed with your mighty
heart coupled with love and
mom’s unworldliness do know
your “lazybones” has survived
