When I Was Just A Little Boy.
(Pic; Diane Arbus.) (I am not in this pic.)
People tell me Mam was beautiful when she was young.
Tall, blonde, knew how to carry herself.
She may be 84 today, but she still carries herself.
Tall, blonde (ish), proud.
People tell me Dad was the most handsome man they knew.
I didn't see that as a young punk!
I didn't see how dark, sultry, cool he was.
He was Da!
Will my girls be proud of me?
Will they, when with their friends, point me out in a crowd?
Well, they are, I think!
And they have, I Know!
Do I care?
Yes , I do!
'Cos I am proud of the way we are raising them.
I am proud of the way they are turning into responsible young adults.
I think we may be doing things the right way!
We may have something to shout about one of these days!
Maybe one day in the future someone will say to one of my daughters,
"Your Da was one of the most........"
Update; I think I might have gotten my answer
