A Child’s Lament

Dear Dad,

You died 27 years ago, and it still feels like yesterday.
And for 27 years, I have not felt your presence around me.
I’ve tried everything, psychics, altars, a boveda, nothing could call you to me.
Only once did I see your spirit, and you left me again, going back to the light.
But yesterday, I felt your energy around me as I did yard work.
You always used to take such pride in the yard…
