A Father Who Didn’t Know Love

He danced at the fringe of love, but never let it get near him

One last beer
One last hug
One more old story
One more tear
Always thought
I would see him again
Takes getting old
to understand
what loss means
He was never there
when I needed him
Left us on the curb
when I was six
But I never
stopped loving him
Flawed man of many shadows,
who never understood life,
