i love this game
he said
as he finished reading a poem
out loud to her
from their favorite poet

he reached out to her
handed over the book
as he had so many times before
just as she
had passed it to him
more times than he could count

she opened it
picked a poem at random
and before she began to read
with warm voice and smile
touched his boot
with her tennis shoe
and said

it’s the best game

    It’s wonderful that you have such a connection to your daughter. You will forever be in her heart.
