Camp Fire

Can you remember those once a year times?
And recall what it was like, just a night with you and Dad?
Maybe you slept in a tent or under the stars.
Put out fire embers int he morning and packed up.
Only maybe you didn’t have a dad to take you,
Until your Uncle stepped up to the plate instead.
That’s going above and beyond the call of duty for family.

Ohana means family. Family means no one gets left behind or forgotten. -Lilo and Stitch

Sometimes your own father isn’t there to be a father to you. If you’re lucky enough, someone else will step up and be there without trying to replace what you’ve lost.


Inspired by the last FreeWriteFriday prompt: http://kellieelmore.com/2014/06/27/fwf-free-write-friday-image-prompt-18/

There are some pretty awesome people out there who just want you to not miss out on something. Because they love you.

  1. I love this, and can relate since I never knew my bio-father, but I did have a step father who filled the void and took the whole family camping. 🙂 Very nice poetic piece with meaning.
