Away & Coming…

IMG_2269

i love you dad

i pray the staph goes away

away so far it can never be found again

away so far it can never be caught

caught in time i can only hope

caught through, as the doctors originally said, a “mysterious” infection

infection of unknown origin

infection that needs to stop

stop and go

stop in the name of love

love does exist in my heart

love cannot tear us apart, dad

dad, i’m glad i reached out

dad, i don’t want to say good-bye

good-bye to the past

good-bye to any lingering turmoil

turmoil of many years

turmoil brings sadness

sadness i heard in marlane’s voice of your status

sadness ferociously felt when mom left

left ? i want you to stay lonng enough to see me turn 50

left, mom missed my wedding, mom left too damn soon

soon enough, i know you will beat this, you’re a fighter

soon again i’ll be able to kiss your cheek

cheek to cheek you danced with marlane

cheek to cheek expressed and loved

loved IS what you have always done for me

LOVED MOM, LOVE YOU

you were a jerk

you are a jerk

JERK, I DON’T WANT TO LOSE YOU !

jerk, i know you’re often as you say, only joking

joking, IF ONLY

joking, first a stroke and now staph, GOD ?!

GOD PLEASE DON’T TAKE MY DAD JUST YET

GOD WE JUST STARTED GETTING CLOSER, WAS IT NOT ENOUGH ?

enough of my own problems, a damn cold that won’t go away

enough of this shitty world we live in

IN TEARS

IN A HOPEFUL MOOD

mood tends to change with me

mood of mine is indifferent in this moment in time

time is on your side, yes it is…

time for YOU TO GET BETTER

BETTER TIMES

BETTER DAYS, I BELIEVE ARE COMING

COMING OUT OF THE ICU, DAD

COMING HOME

home

Dad
