For my children

Farewells said

Instructions given

Not long now

till I’m delivered

Dry your tears

you should be glad

To say goodbye

to poor old dad

The house is yours

so keep it clean

Vacuum and polish

make it gleam

Trim the hedges

cut the grass

Water the flowers

the time will soon pass

Before you know it

the time will come

When I’ll return home

from my holiday in the sun

Wishing you were here
