IN MEMORIAM

To my father, Surgeon of hopes and Smiles…

Dr. Daddy
For the love of Kids
And noble dreams
Scalpel and Rasp
Bring Smiles within

A path to hope
And the right to live
For those little ones
Forgotten by “Bigs”

A secret life
Dressed in green
Another one
In chalk and ink

Speaking for those
Unable to speak
Unintelligible words
Written for gels and pills

With playful faces and sounding hints
Innocence ask for sweets
Hidden in the pocket where
The stethoscope should be

Hands magically disappear
In the search to heal
While a song or a story
Lull pain to sleep

We did not share that Man
The one his little patients did
We just grew proud and happy
To be a branch of his tree

We shared his joy
When they were bound to live
And we cried in silence
If they took sparkly wings

For the love of Kids
And noble dreams
Scalpel and Rasp
In heaven with him

I love you.
