hold my hand daddy

hold my hand
my fav phrase today
his eyes lit up wit excitement and fear

hold my hand
she calls out
her voice light but strong

my grip comforting, securing,
days filled wit the repetition of being Dad, the muscle memory of getting up and pursuing smiles from my children, the intake and exhalation of being Dad, feet hurt, mind numb, attitude bumpy, heart full of joy...i can do this forever it beats...

hold my hand
they say
i gladly do
