Porträt des Grafen von Seilern mit Tochter, by Vaclav Brozik, 1895
“God sets the lonely in families.” Psalm 68:6
He doesn’t know
the little girl inside me
leaps when we chat.
He consistently arrives.
He speaks with respect.
He defers to my femininity.
He listens and affirms.
He self-effaces though he could boast.
Best of all
faith is a bridge
not a barrier.
So often I tell myself
I don’t need a daddy anymore.
But sometimes the deep cavern opens
and grief rushes to the surface.
Today I am healed
by the kind attention
of a silver-haired man
who doesn’t recognize
the blessing he bestows.
