I danced with Benjamin today and he smiled and gave me a look that said “it’s been a while”.
My pappy took me to pick up my van (they replaced the transmission – all under warranty!).
I knew someone thought I was worth the effort.
He asked how I was doing, and he really wanted to know.
I knew someone cared.
We stopped afterwards for some doughnuts.
I knew someone wanted to spend some time with me.
We didn’t talk a whole lot, but
I knew someone loved me.
We had to leave sooner rather than later because there was a baby at home crying for some milk and there were some teenagers at the next table who didn’t know how to talk, but
I knew that someone thought I was important.
So, I went home and sang a song while making supper and I danced.
Thank you, Pappy. I love you
