For a time,
We had a superhero of
Our very own

His powers were larger than life
And endearing
Even though others might call them ordinary

He was
Caring, nurturing and giving
Taught us to look beyond
The trivial matters
And remember what’s truly important
He often set aside his own pain to
Comfort us
Looked out for us
Gifted us with laughter
Loved all of our children the same way he’d spent his life loving us

Now our hero is an angel
Looking out for us still
In the moments when grief tries to rob
Us of the memories
We will be able to recall his strength, his laugh, his smile
