Another Father's Day



Another Father’s Day

Lisa A.Williams


Twenty-nine years
since we said goodbye

on that hot July

still holding the Father’s Day Card
last one, with the picture of  a dad
swooping up his little girl,

the inscription: “Remember when
you soothed all my little girl fears
with just a shoulder to lean on ….”
