It is 11 years today since you journeyed to the Heavenly Kingdom

Though abrupt your departure was, leaving us your children lonely

In heaven abode we trust you sit, by Almighty side we see you smile

Smile again Daddy, though in heavenly form, that bewitching smile

Your sojourn upon this earth was not in vain we now declare

For in us you left your legacy of Love, Values and Fortitude

But most of All You bequeathed knowledge

Upon your lineage now flows your fountain of words that wise.
