father

father

 

i never called him my old man

 

not once

because i had a hard time picturing him growing up

 

young at heart

 

he had the sillies

daily

 

i got them from his side of the family

 

some from my mom too

(double dose)

 

he talks how he wants to leave

in his sleep

like his father

 

first time i’ve seen him act his age

 

he looked sad

but content

 

and still found reasons to laugh

 

it was a healthy laugh

 

full

and loud
