I never watched the man lose his focus

But I knew he often set his sights elsewhere

I never saw the man amble into old age

So I knew him only in his younger days

I never got to ask the man what motivated him

Yet I knew that he couldn’t say no to certain things

I never experienced the man as I should have

So I know so little about he who is called dad
