Remembering my Dad and his Dad

I took the time from normal day
To see the marker where you lay
Paying homage to family and you

We weren't always close sometimes unkind
Looking back thoughts of you on my mind
A father's love though hard is always true

The time I lost when you were here
Cause me regret I shed a tear
My disdain I carry as due

As long as I live you're not truly gone
Your memory in my heart, you live on
Moving forward family legacy I bare through

Just steps east in this hallowed ground
Rests your father whom I'm also honor bound
His memory I will carry willingly too
