Such a pleasure, yes

To hear dad’s voice on the phone

Was like a tonic

He’s recovering

After some eye surgery

Healing takes time

He expected more

Wanting just to be normal

And independent

Today he got it

He is really progressing

Just as he should be

His laughter, like the

Sunshine calling him outside

To rest and relax

You’re doing great dad

Your new eye needs to catch up

With the rest of you
