It isn't funny Dad

You were easily amused
We used to laugh at silly things
Angst was easily defused
By your ‘so funny’ Dad.
I’d tell tales, I’d act the clown
It was frivolous and fond,
Brought joy to you, I loved it too
Times that formed a lasting bond
With your ‘so funny’ Dad.
With made-up rhymes and little songs
We would entertain your friends
And never gave a single thought
To a time when childhood ends
For your ‘so funny Dad’.
The first time that I heard it said
Made me somewhat gloomy, sad—
(My little girl was growing up
Though I really should be glad)
“It isn’t funny Dad!!”
Like a punch below the belt
I was stunned to say the least
The day that childhood left for good
And a certain something ceased
In your ‘so funny’ Dad.
But no regrets, our lives go on
We have reached another phase
Now you’ve got children of your own
I clown with them like bygone days:
“How funny is Grandad!!”
Accept Jesus as Your Savior Right Now and be Certain of Eternal Life.
