Father returns from War.
"You Came Home" by Aussie
The door opened, you came home
Me a child, a blonde gnome
Dropped your kit-bag gazed in awe
I had no hair, you smiled and swore

Growing together, you and me
Gazing at you, wanting to see
Wisdom was your teaching tool
Taught me everything, no fool

Gentle giant in my sight
Love so great held me tight
Patience strong when I strayed
Waited until your game I played

Sights you saw during the war
Nary a word, I needed more
You told me little of your fate
Guns, bombs and sheer hate

Life with you was a learning curve
As I grew so did you, nary a swerve
Time took us through the years
Then through a veil of tears

I lost you to eternity
My mate, my certainty
No longer your comforting hand
Heaven holds you where you stand

Every Father's Day I wish you here
Knowing your love is ever near
Thank you my precious man
For all the years that was our plan
