Semper fi 


My father was a marine 

For years, the only photo

 I had of him

was in his uniform. 

White hat

Dark eyes 

Dashing smile 


When I was four,

While Christmas shopping,

I asked a marine in his dress uniform,

“Are you my father?”

He looked so handsome 

Like my daddy

My mother was mortified 


My father is dead now. 

In the photo,

 he was younger

than I am today


Semper fi

Always faithful 

Always loyal 


Thank you for your service, Dad 

    I’m proud of you
