Father

Looking at
your grave,
thinking of all
that you forgave.
Twice the man
I will ever be.
A Grandfather
my son will never see.
Love was a hard word
for you to say,
still you showed it
everyday.
Things that did not
have to be said,
your actions were
enough instead.
Now my son
looks at me
and I must become
the father
you would want me to be.
