My Father

Since Dad passed
I call Mom daily
Her constant worries
Fears foisted
Upon my heart
Accepted when I was young
Making me afraid
Today I fear not
Not now
Not any more
No longer
Than a moment 
When I know
In both light and shadow
God is with me
With her
I try to convey the truth
 God is my Father
My Dad and my father
Her husband and eternal love
Is embraced and welcomed by Him
Believe, Mom.
Believe . . .
