Dad (03.07.23 - 02.01.09)

No word captures
you except as you were,
spring, summer, fall, winters
of your life, and our lives -
busy, alive.

You hummed, whistled, softly sang,
caring, doing, after so much digging,
plowing, sowing, praying.

I know so much of you
from how you were with me, one
of my creators.

Your collection of ribbons,
nails, scraps, screws -
things with purpose
still unknown.

What a man leaves -
a worn billfold, a wedding ring,
old watch
hold such memory, artifacts
of days, of love,
of time gone by.

Those were the days, he'd say.
Now, home.
