By His Side
He was there when you came to be,
throughout your life, assisted to the right degree.
Saw you grow, saw you change and be defined,
from babe, to girl, to womankind.
A father's love is a treasured source,
Not forgotten throughout ones life's course.
Now old and frail toward his journeys end,
You are there for him, your energy to expend.
Oh Papa I hear you quietly say,
please stay for me another day.
By his side you have always been,
the kindest one I have ever seen.
A daughter's love is a power indeed,
in his time of distress and great need.
So be brave of heart and strength renew,
and pray to Jah to help you through.
Pablo – September 2018
