Ward 4

He’s a stranger
and you’re to love him
Why can’t he take your hand?

He’s a stranger,
in that gown, in that bed,
What can he, what does he, understand?

He’s a stranger now,
who are these memories of
who is this person before you
not living, not dead

Why can’t he talk to you,
guide you, find you
Why can’t you turn to him -
this person made of thread

Why can’t you nurture him
hold him and love him
Why can’t you see in him
what you had?

Why can’t you call him
Dad?
