My Father’s Day Present – Better Late Than Never

Father’s day in Norway came and went this last Sunday and I really wanted to make something special to my father. Failing to getting it done in time I could only greet him on the exact day, but now I’m posting my poem of a present for him here! I love you Dad! 


My Dad


When I was little he was my hero with an invisible cape

With stories in books we would together escape

He taught me the joy in words written down

He was my teacher but also my clown


We traveled a lot him and me

He showed me how fun exploring could be

We didn’t always agree even though he wanted my best

And at times I didn’t make him all that impressed


After my teens I so wanted to make it on my own

Not realizing that I didn’t have to do everything alone

For long I thought asking for help was the same as to fail

Like having a ship but not a single sail


Now I know that asking is not giving up

Maybe that is what they call growing up

Now I know that if I’m struggling or sad

I can always go and talk to my dad


It took some growing up to see

That we weren’t so different him and me

But still I don’t say this as often as I should do;

Dad, I hope you know how much I love you!
