A Poem for Tom

A flash of lightning

An inch of snow

A new boat for floating

Down the Bow


Her son and his wife

From Vegas they came

To come see his Mum

A fine Danish dame


His Dad passed away

Just two months past

Now his Mum is alone

Alone, to the last


Tom used to ride

His bicycle for hours

He would come see his love

Past the houses and towers


Her parents disagreed

With his love for her

So they sent her to school

Away from his lure


But that didn’t stop them

There was nothing that could

They were young and in love

Together for good


They came here from Denmark

The young lovers two

Left their families behind

To start their own family new


Together they were married

For almost 50 years

They shared in each other’s

Joy, sorrow and tears


Two boys they had

But one walked away

From his mother and brother

Leaving the youngest to stay


And so he has come

The third time in a row

To honour his Father

Fishing on the Bow
