Haiku Stu    

 

Where came my footing?
You allowed me my own path.
Faith, father to son.
 
Who sits with my hurt?
A kindred heart in silence;
Strength, father to son.
 
When are we grateful?
Hopefully before too late.
Gift, father to son.
 
What is true friendship?
I give you back to yourself;
Love, father to son.
 
What is the answer?
I do not know ... no one does.
Truth, father to son.
