My Daddy


Little boy
soul child
you miss your mama
you miss your Mama.

I know who You are.
Thank you for coming
first to be my teacher
in time

Thank you for the soft
gentle love and
knowing I was “special”

You gave me a loving
image of God to hold
in my heart
and an understanding that
those around me are
human and fallible

so that I too could learn
to give soft and gentle
love and let them
know they are “special”
even while
human and fallible.
