My dad is so big and strong

I was asleep

the linoleum under me

the TV blaring before me

It must have been a Friday night

I fell asleep on the living room floor

You picked me up

in your big strong arms

and carried me down the stairs

to my bed, soft, awaiting

I felt your arms

as they lifted me

and held me close, lovingly, tenderly

I did not open my eyes

So you did not know

that I was awake

and enjoying every second

while you carried me
