No earthly bond was stronger
No earthly love as true
No, nothing in this world compares
To the love we received from you.

The days drag on much longer
Than they ever used to do
No, nothing in this world we want
We want only to be with you.

'Though some care only for what they can gain
In this life that is fading, it’s true
We know that you knew in your heart, dear Dad
All we ever wanted was you.

And the world can take nothing from us
That really matters at all, oh, how true
For no one could ever take the best
The love we received from you.

One fine day we will shed this pain
When we leave this world so blue
There’ll be no more grief and no more tears
For we’ll be home with you.

Until that day shines bright upon us
There’s really nothing else we can do
But to share with those around us
The love we received from you.

Sleep in peace ‘till we’re together again
…Us and Mom and You.

In Memory of Dad, Francis B. Corbley, 1/23/25 - 1/13/98

6/98

beautiful Denise and so very touching...
and how wonderful the gift of poetry was discovered in you through your need to express your love for your father...
very special gift indeed
take care, jm

 There are places inside our souls ...
that have never been touched.
There are places inside our hearts ...
that need to be loved this much.

Beautifully written and with an earthly wisdom so often ignored.
Wonderful tribute to your father.  May I speak you words to my father in a prayer?
Mine was a loving father as well and sorely missed each day.

Thank you, Elizabeth (nice to see you around here again!), Janet Marie, MagnoliaBlue, Martie, Danny, SEA and Brian for reading and for your lovely replies. This was my first poem and one of the few that I had never shared here before.I'm glad it touched you. Yes, Danny, please do. Great Dads like them will always be sorely missed.

I see that, right from the start, you wrote by inserting a great deal of feeling in your poetry......and you continue to do so. Very, very nice, Denise.

This piece of your heart is
very tender and touching.
Sorry you had to write it ...

to the beautiful poetry you pen so well.
