Winter Nights Never Sleep Alone

by William Brunk

His crooked smile caressed my chest
Winter's son filled up with fire
As you taught me to be a dad.

I weep/giggle/am nudged by the very brim-of-life in accurate understanding. Powerful delivery, this.

This hits hard and leaves behind not only the sad impression but what is to come, a hope in this reader of a different kind of dad in you. Thank you.

I didn't expect the ending, and once it hit I wanted to cry. This is beautiful and something any parent can relate to.

You have a gift for packing a bunch of meaning and emotion into a itty bitty space. This is glorious.
