His green sweater kept her warm
On cold winter nights during a storm
Wool threads tugged at her heart
His warm embrace he did impart
A love felt by his little girl
Who remembered a man who gave her a twirl

His green sweater was bigger than life
Signaling his comfort through the night
Holding her on his lap with tender arms
Keeping his daughter safe from harm
He stood tall with strength abound
His imposing presence would surround

His green sweater remained behind
When they buried him in a box of pine
Memories flood an older woman now
Who wears a green sweater and wonders how
One so dear could pass away
And bring darkness to her day

She wears the green sweater whenever she goes
To reconnect with the man she knows
Was there for her when she needed him most
Restrained and taciturn with nary a boast
She will always remember his wool green sweater
That gave comfort to her when it really mattered

"A book of haiku's that brings sunshine to the hood when frowns dominate. Ever seen corner stores in the middle of the block, with poverty performing on the corner? If not, then he..
