hospice

how many days

can you sit

by his bedside

and weep?

then talk to

one another

about

inconsequential

things, such as

who sent flowers

or fruit

order take out

or pick up fast food

watch day~time tv

while trying to keep

the baby busy and quiet

and the undertaker comes

one, two, three, four times

...in a week

and they close the doors

to shield the families

from the inevitable reality

we wait for death

for the last breath

for relief,

release,

peace.

please.

still struggling, but smiling, daddy...trying to make you proud.

Alice,

Your words are so touching and beautiful. Your father must have been a wonderful man. Treasure the times you had with him.
