I stood looking
at your grave

thinking about
all that you forgave.

Twice the man
I will ever be

a grandfather
my son will never see

Love was a hard word
for you to say

yet you showed
it everyday.

Things that did not
have to be said

your actions
were enough instead.

Now when
my son looks at me

I must become
the father

you would
want me to be.
