I wanna hold your hand!

role reversal is a blessing and a bitch..
I get to hold my dad’s hand every day as I ease him through the day…
I remember the safety I felt as he held my hand growing up…
he held my hand my first day of school, he held my hand when I fell off my bike the first time…
he held my hand as we talked about life…
he held my hand when I found out I had cancer…..and when I kicked cancer…
dad’s hands told me it was o.k. To fly when I was scared….
I simply knew and know it will be o.k. When I hold his hand…
I am grateful I can hold his hand as he now needs my safety, however, how lucky am I to be able to hold dad’s hands for 97 years..
dad, thank you for your safety and love
I’m scared but it will be o.k.
