Father

 

I wrote this little tribute to new Fathers all over the world. I was inspired by Eric Alagan and his 55 word flash fiction you should go and see his poem Father here  .

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Father

His hands are too big,
Like his heart and the love he has to give .
His fear is tangible but he holds the baby
His own his son a leader of men …maybe.
This life these eyes dependent on him
My boy my lad his heart begins to sing.
She just smiles as she watches.

    Willow dear,

    As I mentioned earlier – so beautiful and all the more that I know the back story in your life that birthed these words.

    Peace and blessings,
    Eric
