It is not about waiting for the stom to pass.
Its about learning to dance in the rain.


I’m not a child, she says
You will always be my child, he says
I can take care of myself, she says
I have to look out for you, he says
Don’t you trust me, she says
I do, he says
Then why can’t you let go of me, she says
Because a child remains one in the eyes of the parent
Because I chose to raise you
Because I decided to be responsible for you





for the rest of my life
because I want to
because I will
and
always



Be your father



As you are my child


, he says
