The Man

Falsely accused he was

Banished from his children

Punished unfairly then

Still he believed

Setting the record straight

Would take some lonely years

And many bitter tears

He hung in there

Children become adults

They chose to seek him out

They never had a doubt

He was waiting

Slow, cautious steps taken

Love sleeping was wakened

He’s now Grandpa
