Were you there…

Today as the sun danced on the ground

Did you see…

My boys and me, playing football, living, feeling free

Have they done you proud…

Tall, strong, a boy and a man

And can you see… what will they be?


I see you in them; it makes me smile

Awakening fond memories of how you used to be

I forget for a while as we watch Luis play

The pain, the questions, why it was meant to be


And now the game is over – I sit and think of you

As the sun begins to settle – with the tempting promise of spring

While my questions I cannot hear you answer,

There is one thing I can be sure of:

So proud of them, dad, both you and me x
