A couple of days ago I caught sight of an umbrella on the way to work which immediately cast me back to a day spent in the rain in Southampton with my lovely Dad. It’s funny how the simplest of objects can evoke the strongest of memories. Even rainy days were enjoyable in Dad’s company!
Umbrella spokes they cast me back
Southampton in the rain
No weather would put us off track
Feels like you’re there again
A right old pair, but did we care?
Our time was far more precious
A Father’s love is shelter shared
The raindrops just refreshed us!
You had a plan, you thoughtful man
Protected me from showers
I know how fortunate I am
To know love of this power
And when the sky is gloomy black
Need only hear your name
And instantly I am cast back
To thankfulness again
