This is a short but loving ode to a much loved father. It is always good to have a father as a hero. It means he was strong and loving which is the way a father should be.

Keep writing

    Thank you for your lovely review, and I could not have asked for a better father.

    You are most kindly welcome. Luckily it is the same with me.

I like that your poem concisely shows the many sides of parenthood. It captures the spirit of your family's love and admiration for him. The names that we assign to those we love tell much about the roles they fulfilled in our lives. Also, I commend you on giving credit to the artist whose work you have chosen to represent your poem. It is an admirable pairing. tkbrown

    Thank you so much for your review, and I appreciate that you fully understood the significance of the different names. Regarding the artwork, to be perfectly honest, while I chose the piece from FanStory's art collection, the site ascribed the credit.

What a beautiful poem and tribute to your father! Brings back so many memories of my father. I can feel the love you had for him and know that he is bragging in heaven about you. Thank you for such a heartfelt, wonderful poem!

    Deborah, thank you for this amazing review. Your comment that he is bragging about me in heaven brought me so much comfort. I suspect your father and mine are comparing notes right about now.

    You are most welcome! And thank you for the parting image that so warms my heart!

I have never heard that Yiddish word, Tatala but then I haven't heard any Yiddish words since my Grandad died many years ago. Lovely 3 word poem. Good luck in the competition. Love Jen.

    Thanks, Jen. He was Tatala from the day I could talk, and it was years before I realized that wasn't what everyone called their father.

HELLO MICHELE: Welcome to the club. My dad passed too. So I'm feeling you here. Everybody in my family tells me that I am a carbon copy of, Dad. The older I get...I'm beginning to see what they mean when I look in the mirror. Hey...when you lose your dad you lose a substantial part of yourself. But dad becoming a guardian angel makes you want to become one too. So he can be proud of you...up there...like he was down here. *smile.*
God bless you and yours, Michele. Cordially: rhonnie69.

    Thank you, Rhonnie, for those lovely words of encouragement. I know I made my dad proud when he was alive (he never failed to let me know), and I try every day to make him proud as he looks down on me from above. I was lucky enough to have him with me for 57 years but, like everyone who's lost anyone they loved, I just wish it could have been longer. I'm sorry for your loss as well. This is one club I know neither of us wanted to join. On a separate note, thank you very much for the five stars.

Michele,

Anyway through FanStory, can I send something to you via email? If so, I will gladly send you, as PDFs, my two Erte inspired 5-7-5 verses with the copyrighted images of Erte's ladies.

Mark

Hi Michele
What a wonderful three line poem in memory of your father, the trio of names are so heartfelt and emotive and ignites the gut of your feelings but then we arrive at the third line complete with the most fantastic finale.....And now, Guardian Angel.
Left me breathless
Mitchell

A very well-written three-line poem about a beloved and loving father that passed recently. It is always sad when a parent dies, but we can find conmfort that we know them our whole life until they passed.

    Thank you for your rating, and your compassion. I was lucky enough to have had my dad for 57 years. I know too many others who weren't nearly as lucky, so I count my blessings every day.

Hello again, Michele,
Wonderful tribute to your father. Endearing names as well. I, too, feel the presence of my father although he passed away in 2000. He was my hero and my dearest childhood friend. I miss him every day.
Best Wishes!

    Thank you so much, Diane. I love that your father meant as much to you as mine did (and still does) to me. Too many children, unfortunately, aren't as lucky as we were.
