You are welcome my friend.
i agree with Lyn ..the simplicity belies the depth and sincerity ... i see myself "eroding" and try my best to stand tall ... square my shoulders ... keep my head up .. as we are taught as soldiers actually ... beautiful melancholy in your tribute ma'am

What I like about this piece is its sheer simplicity, and how it reminds me exactly how I feel about my grandfather. Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece.

Yep. My father was himself - strong, proud, humorous - to the end, though others might have seen only his physical weakness. This is a perfect poem, Blue.

Thank you Rita!
I understand this so completely. Nothing - not the lack of memories, the wont of never years, and suicide - ever changed mine for me. A daughter's love is boundless, making him taller than heaven's height.
