Those Winter Sundays Poem

Those Winter Sundays

In the hush of early light,
On Sundays, cold and white,
A father rises, quiet as a ghost,
To warm the house for those he loves the most.

His hands, cracked from the week's toil,
Now tend the morning's fire's coil.
In the chill of dawn, so still and gray,
He kindles warmth, chasing cold away.

No one ever thanked him, it seemed,
For these acts of love, quietly beamed.
His love was not in words, but deeds,
Filling silently, his family's needs.

On polished shoes, and a neatly laid shirt,
He'd labor in silence, ignoring his hurt.
Those winter Sundays, now long past,
Hold memories of warmth that forever last.

In the still of those mornings, love was shown,
Not through words, but by actions alone.
A father's sacrifice, tender and deep,
In those quiet hours, while his world still sleeps.
