Missing my Dad today, on my birthday and my son’s birthday.

As I look at
Dad’s photo,
From his RAF days,
I gaze 
Into his youthful face
Full of hope and plans, 
And mentally overlay
The features of my son:
The same curly hair,
The same nose and eyes 
And I realise, 
You share the same
Self-effacing smile.
He is so like you
In his ways too,
Measured and methodical
In resolving problems,
Practical, reliable
And utterly common-sensible,
And of course,
He’s always right!
Confident in his skin,
In the man within.
I can rely on him,
This Blue-eyed-boy-of-his-Mam
In the guise of a man, 
I’m as proud of him
As you were of me,
Love repays,
