My Father Never Spoke of Dreams

My father never spoke of dreams.

Was his sleep seamless,
His life without regret?

Or were his dreams
The kind he couldn’t share,
Thought I wouldn’t understand?

I hope with all my heart
He underestimated me;
Hope he could have told me,
If not then, when I was young,

Then now, when it’s too late
For him,
But not too late for me.
