When I was a child, my whole family would gather

together to watch Bonanza with my father.

Now that he’s gone, I watch the old reruns,

and it makes me feel as though we’re

somehow watching them together;

I can feel his kind and gentle presence.

Bonanza was one of his favorite shows,

and now it’s one of mine.
