Just A Dream - Poem by Travis Johnson

If my dad can see me now
He would have a smile on his face
He would say look at my son
Growing up into the man you see today
He would take you through my life story
From frame to frame
And how I was poor and homeless
To making more than minimum wage
He would pick up my babies
Kiss and hug his granddaughters
Whisper to my wife and say
Im glad he made a decision that was smarter
Eat dinner and afterwards
Watch my girls' eye blinks get longer
Help me put them in bed stand next to me and say
Today we're both proud fathers
Sometimes I sit back and think
What it would be like if he was here standing next to me
We would get a beer of the refrigerator
He would tell me im his best recipe
The wind blows hard and fast
And I noticed no longer was he next to me
The pain hit me like a kick
Then I realized it was just a dream
