The shadow of your smile

You were a great pillar of strength

guiding us all the way

Your  special deeds for us

 making us happy night and day

You’ve been an inspiration to me

You’d help anyone in need

You’ve set great examples

A true hero indeed

As you walked me through the aisle

I could see the pride in your smile

You taught me to smile

through dark clouds of sadness

You taught me to grasp

moments of happiness

Now that you’re gone

I still remember your everlasting smile

Keeping the memories alive

I take with me the shadow of your smile.

This poem is dedicated to my dearest Dad.

This is in response to The write tribe prompt
