when I come home,
I know where to find him.
he is always in his chair,
watching tv,
even though he wants me to believe
that he is working.
his suit may always look the same,
but his ties are what make him stand out.
always colorful, always interesting.
his scruffy beard scratches my face
when he bends down to hug me.
he tells me “hey minnie.” whenever I come home.
the love I feel from him keeps me warm
whenever I feel down.
it is like warm water flowing through me
whenever I think of those simple words.
“I love you.”
