MY DAD’S BIRTHDAY

This would have been my Father’s birthday,
he was born in 1908.
A quiet, gentle, caring man
and as Husband and Daddy – first rate.

He loved my Mother very much,
he was courteous and kind,
soft-spoken and supportive—
which are the ties that bind.

We were a family of seven—
three girls, two boys, Mum and Dad,
all born and raised in England,
then to Canada, “opportunities to add”.

He helped a lot of people
to understand their spiritual self,
by sharing his knowledge of the Bible
and the textbook – Science & Health.

He left a legacy of love
with all who knew him well.
That’s the best legacy to leave,
still felt in stories we tell.

Happy Birthday Dad.
