Dad’s Face – v2

I saw Dad’s Face
In your face
In profile,
In your movement
Last weekend
In your yard

I was at the ready
To lend a hand
To be his helper again
Through you, my brother
To be close to
Him and to you
Working together

Seeing me
In your son
Brings it full circle
The boy I was
And the man I am
Smiles at the symmetry
God’s Design
Played out in us
Visible if we will just see it

Revised 3/8/04 for posting to web
Dad’s Face
about time a year earlier doing yard work
at my brother’s home
