Poetry

Daddy

By: Karen Lee Stradford

The light shines on your face
as you lie in the colbalt casket
your spirit simmers,
eternal.

Our pleasant morning conversations
over Chock Full O’ Nuts, bagels and scrambled eggs
as Channel 2 news rouses the activities of the day.

My fierce advocate, like a builder
repairing a difficult task
your strength gives me comfort and guidance.

As the sun continues to rise
your heavenly presence will forever stir throughout-
my life.

  1. Karen, what a beautiful tribute to your father. Since I knew him, the beauty of your words must bring him joy as he peers down from the balcony of heaven. Well done! Well said! I think you should consider writing more of them.

  2. Very beautifully written from a daughter who idolized her father, with very deep emotions flowing out of her body. Their connection for each other was always unconditional LOVE.
