Rain Falls in Autumn (Love Letter to Fall)

You are

kind and compassionate;
respectful and diligent
thoughtful and definitive
intelligent and funny
creative, resourceful
patient and forgiving

but firm,
but open,
but firm,
but willing,
but firm.
you resemble both of my fathers
an incarnation of God
a reminder that even mortals
can be divine
you are a teacher
you teach me
you are a protector
you protect me
you are a comforter
you comfort me
even at times when
i forget who i am
you encourage me
to be myself
you challenge me.
i respect you
and i admire you.
i fear you
and i cherish you
