To My Father

Posted on

If a man there was who told me all
Who at 6ft 1” was quite tall
A smile always so close
His pride in me always my guide
Everyday his words surround me
His honour and values
Engulf me.
His mind creative holds my hand
His love of English communication
What a beautiful man
A true gentleman
He loved me as I loved him
Without fear or shame
Aubrey Gerald Driver
What luck I had to be his son
My memory of my life with him
Quite simply
And when we were naughty together he always said
“Don’t tell Mummy!”
