Coat Wrinkler

1 Dec

Sturdy as a Trunk
Bunchy at the Elbow
Ne’er your trust to flunk
Trustworthy as a good old willow

An arm that steadies
When the road is rough and thorny
Seeing me through, ever ready
To support me through my journey

An arm that retrieves
In times when life deals a bad hand
All hope seems lost and the soul grieves
It’s there to lend an ever supporting hand

An arm that helps
Not only when the going gets rough
But when the soul is at its happiest
To caution gently, but ever tough

An arm that was practice
When I was younger
An arm that is support
Now that I’m older

It is the greatest gift ever
One that has no replica
Given from father to daughter
It’s strength never falters
And from father to son
To be passed on and on

A father’s arm

    Interesting poem. I’m still trying my skills out on poetry.
