Married,
Stable.
Seemed so
Simple.

Husband,
Father,
Afraid for the little ones.
Always relied upon.

Sorted,
Planned-out --
Seems reasonable.
Oldest,
Wisest --
Always providing for
The ones that we ignore.

I'll be damned if I could
Work so hard
To be the owner of assembling parts --
Fathers with remarkable hearts.

Slowly,
Missed out.
Often missed last.
For this
Reason,
Pleased to be watching you.
There's lots I could learn to do.

The gentle fist that guides you
Through the room.
The time it takes to learn to
Speak the truth.

The tone that you took with me then
Was for the best.
The corners that I stared upon --
For the best.
Each time I dug up the yard
Near the fence,
The gold that I found...

This son is great,
This son is grateful.
There's nothing you can follow back.
