Before I Can Move Forward

By , Chavies, KY
Before I can move forward, I need to see you smile.
I need to feel your calloused hands.
I need the real you, for a while.

Before I can move forward, I long to sit and chat.
I don’t want your eyes to be bloodshot.
I miss everything, but that.

Before I can move forward, I cannot forget.
The way you used to tuck me in,
Watching your dangling cigarette.

Before I can move forward, your face I must memorize.
It’s been so long since I’ve saw you Daddy.
Are you ready to apologize?
