Father’s Day

Flashy signs, new mugs and ties

‘Perfect Gift’ in bold

Eyes wide
Throat tight

Heart sunk

A time that’s meant to celebrate
Drips freshly painted black
Left behind, a broken hint of

Loss forever present

Tear stains mark a favorite shirt,
Brought on by fleeting scent
A song, a sight, a word, a thought,

A trigger firmly pressed

The desperate untold search has taught
What’s missing can’t return
Now left with words, imploring those

Who hold what’s envied most

Enjoy the shopping, wrapping, planning

Don’t take any time for granted

Make the call
Sign the card
Give the hug

Take the drive

The moments on this earth are few
Embrace the love you have
