A Son's Love for his Father

by John Kent
My father loved me.
He told me so.
In the dark twists of night,
where dreams
make all thing possible,
I see him.

He shines with the soft glow
of perfection.
He hugs me in his strong arms
and tells me,
death is just another door
to life.

Not to grieve
but to go on..that in me,
he lives.
How can I be less
than my father was?
How can I be less to my mother?

She loved him
with every breath of her being.
I will make her proud;
Uphold my father's name,
with dignity and honor.
His blood
runs deep in my veins.
..I can do no less.
