I Am Mine

I decorated

Jesus of mine, once you were

lean, hawk-eyed, and just

what I needed to survive

this life with you, without you

I decorated

myself, your fine laurels mine

struggle to dictate your law

less the presence of Jesus

and, Dad, I often

wonder how you have the nerve

to clap yourself on

the back for a job well done

    Oh, how poignant this is to me at this time – I may tell you why soon. It touches me and angers me and makes me love you more… for being brave enough to write this out loud, for being able to say what I find it so difficult to say.
