Signature (in the memory of my late father)

I remember how in school
friends would pity me
because your craggy signatures
were impossible to forge
on a bad class test
 
I remember  how disappointed
you were when I first signed
for my first ever bank account
 
"no style at all !"
 
you had teased me all day long
 
 
 
Thousands of signatures later
yours and mine
I now remember only two
your last one on your cheque book
and my shaky one
in the crematorium record book
 
I hold your pen often
 
and try to feel
 
the last warmth of your fingers
 
on its cold steel
 
I sign my name
 
a hundred times for you.
