“Papa Who Wakes Up Tired in the Dark” by Sandra Cisneros. “My Papa, his thick hands and thick shoes, who wakes up tired in the dark, who combs his hair with water, drinks his coffee, and is gone before we wake, today is sitting on my bed.” (56-57). My husband,
His kind heart and endearing love,
Who brings me coffee in the morning,
Who knows my thoughts without being told,
Remembers to tell me I’m pretty,
And is the best daddy in the world,
Today is still my first love.
