for my parents.
for my brothers.
for my grandparents who i haven't seen
for 4 years or some more because they died when i was young.
for my students who think i'm only there
for a paycheck and not
for someone to care about how i've been feeling
for the last few weeks or even seconds.
for the time of day from a stranger.
for a door to be held open as i approach.
for my children who i'll never get to meet.
