FATHER’S DAY

 

 

DAD

This sunrise,

I sense your eyes

In the chill of Spring

And want to sing.

Like the boy,  I  once was.

Just because,

Winter’s gone

And you —- my song.

Water snow is on the ground

And all around

Brown leaves cap

Tulips deep in earthen nap.

It is then

I remember when—

You so clear,

Disappear.

Even before

I closed the door.

You knew it last,

All those Seasons of the past.

When,  wild mustard  flies,

Down the rows of grape stake ties,

I feel the choke

Of time’s quick stroke.

As the years go by

And the inner eye

Still holds you dear

It cannot fear,

That it’s too late

To relive fate

As if ever new,

The wonderful presence of you.

That you are gone

And sorrow’s song

Becomes light

In the holding of your flight

Away from us.

When the birches sing

In the emerging Spring

Photo shards bring You close,

Pushing me on a backyard swing.

And thus,

Always there

I never fear

You are lost,

Though I am lost.

Without the life of you.
