Thank you, Papa
by   Wrigley

Infinity joined his love, and wrapped my childhood 
with unconditional acceptance.

History mattered, as it was shown to me 
through gentle eyes; 

Lessons to allow the importance 
of little things; 

Tall. 
 Callous hands cured my uncertainty; 
 work and hugs vied tenaciously; 

Proudly. 
 Shoulders etched with wrinkled worries, held me, 
 sustained the weight of little tears; 

Big. 
 I never wanted 
 for what matters most to a child: 

Love.
 No doubt about it; I was, still am.
 How blessed is that?

Thank you, Papa
