Message To My Dad:

At a period when I need you most, you aren’t there. In the stands cheering, not anywhere. I often thought it wasn’t fair. But lately, I’ve noticed, I just don’t care.
You’re phone lines are disconnected. I tried to call. You’re nowhere to be found at all. Four real lucky stiffs get to have you be the Dad you never were for me. But that’s ok. I’ve changed my mind. I need a Dad who’s present, loving, kind… Along life’s path, I picked up snapshots of better Dads that I could find and built one even if only in my head.
To you it’s done, a “job” to you. On this Father’s Day, that statement’s true.
