It's where you eat your funnel cake that matters.


When early twilight falls
Violet smudges over the horizon like purple cotton candy
I know where I will find you-
In the garden
Ankle deep in grass and soil
As if you grew out of the flowers yourself

When you poke at meat on the barbeque grill
Sending rings of smoke into the crisp air

When you hold Mom's hand
A couple framed
Against the lilac sunset

Long walks on Sunday mornings
Lungfuls of spring
And thoughtful words

On snowy winter nights
You blow in from the icy wind
The handsomest snowflake I know
Enveloping me in your warm coat
I want to stay there forever

These are five things
Five reasons
Why I love you.

If I were your dad....and a male....it'd probably really enjoy getting this for Father's Day.
