A Simple Man

 

He was my Daddy

A simple man

Spoke his mind, never ran.

 

Articulating his words

Between his labored breath

Two words filled my head.

 

I didn’t want to hear

Even though I cared

I didn’t want to be there.

 

Two simple words

They could not be undone.

I wanted to run.

 

Daddy, I was afraid

Even though I prayed

One day it will be okay.

'One day it will be okay', that's the line to bear in mind, Deborah Ann.

Lovely sentiments directed to your Dad.


Namaste
Reviewed by Felix Perry 11/13/2010
A lot said in few words, although I am not sure what the two words were, I know that the strength and love you had made you survive and hold onto the love you had for him.
