Tinker Posted May 8, 2013 Share Posted May 8, 2013 Sunshine for Breakfast He’d wake me by putting his sunshine face within a breath of mine and saying, ”Mom, dinner please.” he hadn’t yet mastered the word “breakfast”. His shiny face with those round brown eyes that sparkled promise will remain fresh in my mind beyond my end. It was only a few short moments before it matured into the strong face of a man fulfilling those promises. But it’s the memory of that tiny face that makes my heart leap out of my breast and twist inside out. It was from that face I discovered how steel-strong love can be. ~~Judi Van Gorder Here he is with his Dad riding color guard for the Sonoma County Sheriff's Department in the Apple Blossom Parade 1973 Quote ~~ © ~~ Poems by Judi Van Gorder ~~ For permission to use this work you can write to Tinker1111@icloud.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
