10-9-96 “60”

I’m thankful that you are
One of those who went before
Not only for the obvious reasons
Art, thought, the path of the spirit
But those things between 6 & 7

The things that we do
That we shouldn’t
Things that we should
That we don’t

The other gifts
The hand offered to me
Before my time
Record breaking phone calls
Sharing, Discus-u-ments
The lessons will never end
As long as the teacher keeps learning

I know so little of time
Maybe you know how it moves better
You’ve been around a while
I hope you’ll be around some more

Happy Birthday Dad
I love you.
