Tears are wellin' this was very well expressed. I could feel the wanting to not let go.
Wow. My dad is terminally ill and we're scattered in four states across America and overseas. I each time I call we're so conscience it could be the last time.

Ok, you've made me tear up. Very powerful poetry.
Oh how this bruoght the tears!My, do you wrap the feelings of sadness, longing, and fear of losing and letting go in one beautiful short piece. I love this. I can so relate to this as my mom and I had to say goodbye to my dad when he was on life support. Memories come flooding my mind and I am overwhelmed. I think this flipped a switch that I had chosen, out of pain, to not reach lately. This has inpsired me to write about my dad. Wow! Thx for this well written piece hon! God bless and keep up the writing.:0)
