Dorsal Fins of Memory.
What do I remember
of how you effortlessly swam through life.
Connecting from one moment to the next
from one school to the next
Now Struggling as you go from point A to point B.
Making splashes and ripples through the seas of time
Creating an undercurrent of emotion and compassion
Lift up your fog so I can see clearly beyond the mist of time
Let my emotions become part of your fog
Remember the journey as we passed by Hendricks Head Light,
fully becoming one with you.
Innocently trusting your instincts
believing in your strengths and resourcefulness
Let me hug you more , Papa, and appreciate all the little stuff that you have done for me.
For those days of time that remain between us.
