Gazing into his sweet, brown eyes and words feel unnecessary. I have known him for more than half of my life, yet vulnerability arises as if we are meeting for the first time.
I see Captain as a young, carefree boy. These same eyes, just decades earlier. The eyes of an older brother who experienced loss. The eyes of a young man beginning a new adventure as a freshman in college. The eyes of the one I came to know, love and marry. The eyes of the father to my girls. The eyes of a beautiful forty-three year old man who is all the above and so much more.
Happy Father’s Day Captain. You have my heart.
