My Father?s Song
By Susan Salidor ©1996
My father sings old songs
And he says ?Come, sing along?
So in harmony we sing
And it?s then I know the joy they him

He takes the kids upon each knee
And serenades them tenderly
Lullabyes and swing and corny things
That make them dance and laugh and sing

All at once I?m eight years old
Mostly doing as I?m told
Which meant staying on the melody
While dad sang a third below

There was a time I didn?t know melody or rhyme
There was a time I couldn?t sing on key
It was my dad who taught these things to me.

And he sings them all by heart
To the end, right from the start
His heart is light, and I see a little boy
I see my dad when he was young.
