"Last week was pretty eventful. I turned 60 and you wrote me a letter.
(This is my father)
Evened out pretty good, I'd say.
(Stranger, human being, sometime ghost)
I'm so glad you wrote and I hope we will keep it going.
(Left me long ago)
If there are things you need to get off your chest, then do it so we can move on.
(Lonely child, know you nothing of men?)
I don't blame you for anything and I'm not mad at you. I just miss you.
(Spent myself trying to fill that hole)
If you are angry with me, which would be understandable, maybe we can sort it all out and have a really fine relationship for the time that's left to us.
(Had men, so many men. Craved love. Bought love. Crawled for love.)
You're old and experienced enough now to know that in most lives mistakes are made. I've made a few whoppers.
(Waited half a lifetime to look for him).
Tell me about your life. Tell me about your kids. Actually, I'll be glad if you tell me anything. Love, Dad.
(Never knew I needed him).
