A Poem for Zachariah

Oh Zachariah, what can we say
You made our lives brighter each day
With that lovely face and cheeky smile
You made our daily jobs worthwhile

You made us laugh with your jokes and sayings
Though sometimes rude, you were only playing
While we all stood, with bums to the wall
Whilst you walked on through the hall

You loved to sing to ‘Bad to the Bone’
Before Dad picked you up to go home
On the bus you loved to ride
With Dad sat always by your side.

“Look at me”, you’d say non-stop
Whilst stood there in your funky top
You said you’d catch the runner beans
I bet you chased them in your dreams.

Willies and blooblies, were your favourite conversation
Although this was not part of your education
It was never quiet whilst you were around
The way you stomped your big boots on the ground.

Your favourite was the Cheese on Toast
Followed by the weekly roast
Winner, winner, chicken dinner
As the years went by, you got bigger and bigger.

At dinner time, a little rest
Watching ‘Cars’, that was the best
In the garden you watched the sky
And shouted when a plane went by.

Making a sandwich with Peanut Butter
Mmm, this is good, you would mutter
You got confused with he and she
It made you laugh, its so funny.

We miss your smile
Your joking ways
We miss the things you used to say
And when old times we do recall
It’s then we miss you most of all.
