Poem: Father

When I was small
And you were tall
You held my hand
When I was wed
And words left unsaid
You held my hand
When I was in court
You gave your support
You held my hand
When I fought the big C
You never left me
You held my hand
When I lost my daughters
We sat by still waters
You held my hand
When I faced divorce
You were my guiding force
You held my hand
When you died
By your side I cried
I held your hand
