For My Father


Everyone always said I look like you

Your middle child

Same hair

Same eyes

Same knowing smile

So sorry I went wild

Those crazy teen-aged years

So long ago...


Just wanted you to know


How proud I was

The morning you brought my lunch to sixth grade

Walked into class with the forgotten bag

All eyes turned to see

Your movie star handsome face

 “Is that your dad?”

“Of course,” I said, and smiled...


Just wanted you to know


It’s what they couldn’t see

Your wisdom, strength, and love

Forever imprinted

In my heart

All those years ago

That’s helped to carry me along...


Just wanted you to know.
