My Dad Gave Me A Coupon - Poem by Larry Hussey

My Dad gave me a coupon
for a free cup of coffee.
I wish it could be
a slip of paper
that says 'I love you, son'
but that will never happen,
ever.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

This really happened, only it was a lot of coupons he was saving for himself originally, but decided he didn't want them any longer.
