Fatherly Figures

 

Some showed balance
Some showed emotions
Were appropriate at times
Some expressed anger
And taught me I need boundaries
Some special ones allowed joy
To infiltrate them and bring joy
To the rest of the world
Many taught me
Many moments
To reflect upon
Thank you for being
Who you are
Those father figures
In my life
