Memorial To Dad

Steve Jackson just wrote this poem to his Dad. Find Steve’s book on Amazon.image

Kidnapped

My Dad,

bless him for this;

when I was 5 or 6

he read to me at night

before I went to bed.

Robert Louis Stevenson’s

“Kidnapped”

is the story I remember best.

It took my father

many nights to read to me

that whole book.

I’d lay curled up

on his lap

while his gentle voice

took me away

with the story.

So loving of him,

to come home

tired from work

and read his little child

“Kidnapped,”

the story of a child

kidnapped away from childhood

and taken

to roam

the ocean.
