Humberto Santos April 4, 1944-1997
My father, Humberto Santos, would have been 62 today.
Happy Birthday Dad.
"Big Band, Slow Dance"
Were you close? Im asked, as if grief
Would sting less deeply were we friends
As well as son and father. Further apart
Two men could never meet, though blood bends
Through arteries, veins and capillaries
Summoned into Presence by his pleasure.
On that I could have grown more slowly -
Remember being held, and cradled like treasure.
