A dad in the night

I was sitting up late the other night,
not paying much attention to the TV flickering in my face
as I thought about Daughter #1 and the plans
spinning in her life,
all while I waited for Daughter #2 to
come home from a group outing.
Then this video came on, and I knew that sleep
was a long way off,
and that tomorrow was much too soon.

  1. Now go check out Phil Vassar’s song Love is a beautiful thing (my big redneck wedding). It will give you another perspective! There is also a version without the rednecks.
