For my Kate

The age of your renaissance
I am in awe of your achievements
particularly in your range of growth
I am left with much hope and faith in your future
These are matched with fear I might miss news
chance to participate
opportunities to help
a hundred little miracles in your life
Motivation is hard to keep for me as I feel you slip away
Much of it is caused by change as you cease to stay
close close close no no no
the tone
the face
the age has come
my time with you has passed
now I must content in that you will return again
I have passed the torch so warmth is gone
but I shall match pace from within sight
til once more I am in the race
worth is there beyond compare
my love for you to share
wisdom tells me my patience will come to bear
much fruit and bread and blood

with all my heart forever,
your Dad

Paz, Keith
