I don’t know how old he is, but today is my Pa’s birthday.
The only real father I’ve ever had
always there for me
showed me things I didn’t know
got me to mow lawns
made me laugh
taught me the value of naps, procrastination and eating
I guess it’s appropriate that my poem “Foster Home” was read today in class, and given an asterisk saying I should have it published.
Happy Birthday Pa, I love and miss you.
