Dad, I remember 30 years ago
As though I had taken a picture
And written details on the back.
You made me peanut butter and jelly,
Taking the time to spread the jelly
All the way to the edges of the bread
And the peanut butter applied evenly
Like icing on a birthday cake. 
You gently put my sandwich,
Juice box, fruit and cookies on
The bottom of a brown paper bag
And folded the top over squarely
Several times pressing it tightly
So it wouldn’t unravel on the bus.
I remember this quite vividly and
Love you for caring so much that
Even my peanut butter and jelly sandwich
Had to be done well and my lunch bag
Had to stay together on my journey.
