Good morning to all my faithful readers. I wanna do something different on here today. I’m not much of a poet, but today is my dad’s birthday, he would have been 62. Every single piece of me that is good comes from this man. He used to tell me son, when your dumb you gotta be tough. My dad was one of the smartest men I have ever known, along with the toughest. He had a heart that was harder than steel, but shined like gold. His charisma would blind most eyes. The wisdom he tried to teach me fell on deaf ears at the time, for I was lost and blind. Old man how I wish I could turn back the hands of time. How I wish you could see me and mine. Your heart now beats in mine, for I am no longer lost, nor am I blind. Not sure if you can hear me, but I talk to you on the daily. Happy birthday Dad, you may be fine but never forgotten. Rest in peace now knowing your lost son has found the light and his way, and lives to fight another day. I love you dad!!! To those of you out there in the grip of it, I pray that today is the day your life changes forever as mine has. God Bless. If no one told you today, I love you and you matter.
