Daughter To Father

People always said they could see

Long walks happened between them now...

One clear soft evening

The father thought as they walked,

The thought had never come to him like that before,

"Can you think of a single better measurement of happiness

He nodded, then went on, teaching himself as he taught her...

From that plateau, he reached again,

Now their thoughts leap-frogged past each others'.

"Daddy, how many real relationships do you have? And

Investment of time... together

Finally, a longer silence signaled that the list

The conversation shifted from question to answer

(Her hand tightened on his fingers, and performed the answer

They turned for home
