father's day

Sparkling eyes,
Smile filled with dreams.
Plans. Vitality.

All the world's an oyster roast,
Girlfriends, independence.

World wars? marriage? Sons
And a granddaughter...
Are they too hidden in
That grin?

Your youth is a blind bliss
An optimism you hold yet,
As your vision dims
And your smile fades.

Father's day, Savannah
A few years back.
