Father’s Day without Dad

autumn

Yet, another Father’s Day.
a Dad long gone, still missed,
others celebrating, happy,
I wait for the day to end.

Everywhere you turn,
flashes of Father’s Day,
lunches and dinners advertised,
give Dad a day to remember.

Birthdays and Anniversaries,
I remember my Dad
Christmas and New Years,
he is remembered.

Yet, Father’s Day is tough,
to see daughters and sons,
with their Dads, celebrating,
is heart wrenching without mine.
