Dad

I never really knew you
but I know I love(d) you
The silent strength
the sparse words of wisdom
that left their indelible mark

I am so grateful to you
for showing me to live
in acceptance and tolerance
let people be who they are

I am sad we never really talked
but I accept how we were
and have peace in my heart
in knowing of this.

I miss you
I miss your presence
I miss you
I miss your sureness
I miss you
