Just Like You, Dad

Goosebumps jump up across your skin
I ask if you’re cold
You shake your head, “No”
I sit on the little stool watching
As you shave another bit of stubble
From your rosy cheek
You work cautiously, quietly
And I sit, curiously watching
I see you glance at me in the mirror
From time to time
And I just continue to stare intently
Memorizing your every move
Knowing, as the minutes go by
I am growing older
And someday that will be me
Standing there – naked from the waist up
Making myself presentable
As my own little boy watches on
Getting a glimpse of what’s ahead
For him as well
Some day, I’ll be just like you, Dad

Just Like You, Dad
