    the dig in the dirt
    go to bed tired
    spread out the gravel
    plant the trees and vegetables days

    the creak in the knees
    crust in the knuckles
    come back in five years
    to see how it all worked out days

    the plot the resurrection
    slam the door open
    say thanks for the help
    give thanks for the pups days

    the listen to the same riddles
    watch him disappear slowly
    watch him sit in silence
    learn what it means to be family days

    the all that I hoped for
    never saw it coming
    wish there were another way
    keep our promises to each other days

    the I’m with you
    I’m with you
    I’m with you days

      Your father-in-law is so fortunate, but I have a feeling you feel the same way.

      Blessings …

      These are magic words. The few they are deftly reached through the murk and distraction to connect themselves to my heart beat and alter it in harmony. God has spoken through you a deep truth. Thank you.
