Dad's Memory


Memories of Dad when I was little, singing me to sleep at night with his Mario Alonza voice.
Mowing the lawn on Tullo Road, our seventy-five acre front lawn.
Years of living together, in the end having to let go of him.
Still holding and thinking of Dad in every memory when I was little.

The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
