Man to Man

Man to Man

A Poem by Cecelia

for Father's Day


It’s time we had a talk! 
(as you used to say) 

It’s time we had a talk! 
(I go first today) 
I learned what’s right and wrong from the 
talks we had back then. 
I learned of the choices that are 
Made and faced by men. 
But, lessons of love,  
forgiveness, pride and dignity 
Were lessons that were learned 
from the way you treated me. 
Without you I would 
never have believed 
“I can....” 
You taught me much 
and you did it 
"man to man"
