our boys are great fathers!


genetics can say who a father is,
but actions, love, say clearly what a father is,

I am in awe of my sons,
who each manifests what I hope for in fatherhood,
to know both who a child is
and how much a child can be,
to know what to do, what to say,
despite doubt and fear and tiredness
holding down any sureness in the parenting,

I know our grandchildren,
who each is, and the magnificence of that essence,

I honor my sons for how well each is a good father,
who dares to help the best come forth.
