Backward looking

No easy feeling

Memories; anger; drinking

Fearsome, awe inspiring

More

Patient teaching

Teaching about thinking

Thinking not just doing

But also doing

Fishing, hunting, camping, making, and... Thinking

Talking

Politics and world erupting

Protecting

Yelling

Thinking, talking, drinking

Not ever trusting

Then, dying

Never reconciling

 

Scientist, officer, son, husband, Father

Left us; regretting

Brilliance stifled, trapped

Genius caught

Devotion to duty

A calling to serve

Not to think?

Perhaps

So

Anger and drink

But more

Love unquestionable

Love controlled

Hidden, hiding, peering

It’s there

I grab it; hold it

Dear Father

Reconciliation

I love you

Even when a father is gone, you can find peace in forgiving and reconciliation. A worthy remembrance for Father's Day.

there is so much here-of love, of honesty, pain, anguish, regret, so well done, so human :)
