I’m Here

[Midwife]”Ok, pull her out”
Be there
Skinned knee
Be there
Third birthday
Be there
First day of school
Be there
A-B Honor Roll Assembly
Be there
Another hopeless soccer match
Be there
Understudy in the school play
Be there
Hugs, tantrums, and tears
Be there
More violin practice
Be there
Polynomials
Be there
Hey, Daddy, look at this!
Be there
Hey, Dad, you like what I wrote?
Be there
Trip to the ER
Be there
Boy drama
Be there
When you’re tired
When you’re sad
When all is crashing around you
You’re still her Dad
Be there
Hey Dad, can we talk?
Be there
Be there
Just,
be there.

About Kitt

Sometimes a rhyme or couplet wanders across my consciousness. So, I share it. Other times I'm a hospice social worker; others, a Dad; others, southerner, New Orleanian, cajun enthusiast, voter, and on better days, a not-too-awful-poet/rhymster. Welcome to my page. Enjoy.
