In honor of my father RIP 2-15-2006:

DAD?

First impression,
a glove,bat, the backyard,
Jeffrey, you can do it!
Are you sure Dad?

A plane crash, a bandaged hand,
A reassuring smile.
Are you alright Dad?

A 1500 mile move,
Wilmington,De. to Tulsa,Ok.
Baseball or Batman Cards?
Dad?

A train set damaged, a new start.
Can it be fixed Dad?

A new start, a new baseball team,
A new position, pitcher!
Coach, I can't throw, catch or bat.
Can I do this Dad?

Girlfriends, pinball machine,
fire engine red F-100,
A summer with DuPont,
Breakfast with Dad.
Roof needs to be shingled,
"Son, handle it."
Dad?

High school graduation,
pouring concrete, turning cash,
"Son, college calls."
Dad?

Winter break in Tulsa,
A softball game, a dive, batters safe.
A trip to the Er.
"Son, are you hungry?"
"Dad, how about Wendy's?""
Doctor; 3rd degree separation,
Surgery in three days.
Dad?

Another bad break-up,
Father and son to a show.
Winter break, roller skating.
Bad fall.
"Dad, surgery in three days."
"Son, I don't want to know."
Dad?

A wedding.
One son; Justin.
One daughter; Savanna
"What happened to Ashley son?"
Another son; Shawn.
The family is complete.

A new venture
Late nights, long hours.
A voice of assurance.
A loan, tough divorce.
One chapter ends, a new one begins.
Dad?

OSU basketball game,
A great victory ends with a fall.
The lights are slowly dimming
Dad!
Dad?

A visit from friends in an empty room.
Cleaning needs to be done.
"Dad, ask them turn around."
"Okay son, I will."
The conversation continues.
Dad?

A packed auditorium with a sea of gray,
A video dedication.
Final thoughts and reflections.
Rest in peace Dad.
"I am son, I am."
Dad?

A reunification with a lost love.
A night of bewilderment in February
Filled with questions and concerns.
How will it turn out Dad?
"She will be fine son."
Dad?

A cold marble bench,
A shower of tears,
A voice from the heavens.
"Son."
"Dad?"
"Told you she would be alright son."
"Dad, I Love You and miss you."
Son.
