I’m older than my father.
Yesterday I was as old
As he was when he climbed a mountain
All the way to heaven
And never came home.
It was 37 days before his birthday
And he didn’t want to see it.
He wanted to stay the age that
People say is the answer to life
Yet, my father had no answers.
He only had questions, and that
Didn’t seem to be enough for 42 years.
