Everyone was telling her that he was a nobody. Yeah, maybe noticed on Christmastime, as one or the other passerby threw a quarter or a loonie to his dirty-green hat, as if to mute that uncomfortable voice that would start screaming inside…

But what SHE saw was that he had dreamy blue eyes, that once were looking with love and passion at his wife… Eyes that cried tears of joy, when their daughter was born… The same eyes were now filled with unbearable pain and hope…

She put her fragile hand on his cheek…

“I found you Daddy… at last…”
