"Do I dare disturb the universe?" -T.S. Eliot

I am not alone
Because my father is with me
I do not cry
Because his hands are in mine
I do not stumble
I do not fall
Because his footsteps are what I follow
I do not faint
Because he does not swallow

When I feel weak
He holds me up
When I feel sad
He wipes my eyes
When I feel anxious
He calms my heart
No matter how I feel
He always shares a part

He’s forgiven me
He’s cried with me
He’s held my weary bones
He’s tasted my fear
He’s died for me
I know he’s always close
No matter what I do
No matter what I say
He takes my hand
He holds me close and long
And whispers
“Daughter, you are strong”
