Another Fathers' Day
The day draws near; I inwardly reflect,©06/11/2017 Carol Welch
how many sides of fatherhood I view,
mixed view of dazed affection and respect,
some fear of disapproval that is due.
A clever crack I did or did not get,
do you supposed I'd ever think of that?
Covert, the wink that meant 'just us', and yet,
how much I wished to share it, be 'high hat.'
My sons, now men, and even grandsons too,
bring giggles and awed wonder to the mix.
I recall my part with the Dad of you;
What Mother can't, you might say, "Daddy fix."
Fathers' Day, we salute you with the rest;
may you impart to younger lives your best.
